Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Good afternoon. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.
Your legal remedy is to make a demand for repayment and if he fails to repay the note then sue him to obtain a judgment and force repayment.
Once you have a judgement you can garnish his accounts and have his property seized and auctioned off for satisfaction of the judgment.
It is not required that you retain an attorney, but you may find it helpful.
If you need assistance finding local counsel try Martindale Hubble (site rules prohibit us from referring specific attorneys) . Many attorneys themselves use this site to locate attorneys outside their jurisdiction or expertise:
