Yes. An oral loan of money is an enforceable oral contract under Texas law.
so what type of lawyer would i need to obtain?
while the texts, emails, and voicemail don't create a written contract, they are evidence of your oral agreement.
You simply need to print out the emails, text, and record the voicemail (and create a transcript). I would attach these to your complaint. You can also send a copy of these documents, with a copy of the complaint to the person, demonstrating that you are serious. give them one week to reach a settlement or inform them that the lawsuit will be filed.
ok, and i will need all receipts etc. of everything i have paid?
and i just file the complaint with the courts?
claims court? it isn't considered small claims over 5k right?
