Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'm an attorney. I’ll be happy to help you in any way I can. This site is for educational purposes only. Sometimes - although certainly not always - experts have to give you what you deem “bad news” but that should not be a reflection of how satisfied you are with the assistance your expert provided. My goal is to make sure you are completely satisfied before you submit your rating so please let me know if you have additional questions or you need me to clarify anything If there is a delay in the time it takes me to respond it is because I am working with a customer or I am not online - but rest assured I will respond to your follow up question, if you have one. Also,occasionally I will respond from a mobile JA unit, which automatically asks you to submit a rating once I submit a response - but please don't feel like you need to do so until we are done speaking. Essentially what you have is someone who assisted you in your time of need who has now gotten desperate b/c he needs money. Do you have a copy of anything that you signed stating that you owe him money, the terms for repayment, etc.? That would be really helpful. Otherwise, what he could do is go to small claims court with his version of events and any documentation he has. Getting his money back becomes tougher the less of a paper trail there is for the loan but you nonetheless could find yourself in a messy situation. You could try to call him back to diffuse the situation and offer a repayment schedule - but ultimately, whether he can collect is dependent upon what you signed as part of your loan. I hope that helps.
