I purchased a car from a broker, now fired for illegal sales

I purchased a car from a broker, now fired for illegal sales of a LEMON to me. Dangerous to say the least. IE Dream Motors of upland has given me the run around for a month. It cost 2,300 to get the safety issues fixed. Now there is electrical damage. I took it to GMC and Skips Auto to make it even able to drive. The broker is listed and Dream Motors to the BBB as having an F Rating. I got paper work after the fact that said it was worth 6,400 but the bait and switch was showing the TRUE value of 1,800. I have been fighting for a month.

I have a real bad situation that is financially devistating

I have a real bad situation that is financially devistating for me and my carrier. I am being sued for a job taken as a CSR to work under the agent of this company. They are now using this contract to take all of my business I done as an agent for the 11 years prior to my signing this contract. I worked there for 2 years and also have a whistle blowers complaint in this suit. The problem is I need my clients released that I show as agent of record prior to my signing this contract. The company already had some of my comissions in hand when they strong armed mne to sign this contract and promisied me an agent agreement would follow that would allow me to keep all of my clients. when I left and went to take my clients is when this suit was filed against me. How do I prove that the CSR contract does not allow them to use that as an agent contract. I can not find anything stating that CSRs by law are not allowed to sell as an agent or anything showing this job contract allows them to consume my clients. My client base was 4 times the client base of this business...JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: MichiganJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I have a protection order and not allowed to contact clients and it is Medicare open enrollment time.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I had a large amount of clients before taking this position and signing this contract. I was told I would have an offer to work as an agent and would be able to have some input on this agent agreement. My comissions were paid to the agency for my clients first on 12/31/2013 and I signed the contract on 1/7/14. The employer already had over $5000 of my Meedicare cleint comissions in hand and Forced me to sign if I wanted my money returned. I do have a lawyer who has been working this for over 5 months now and not doing much to help as he does not seem to know what to use to fight back for me. I think it maybe possible he is milking me and not sure what to do to get my business back. I need some sort of legal proof that I can take to the Judge on 10/24. I am hoping to find someone that has tried this type of case that can assist me with some documents for a fee. I need a case example or something reflecting that CSR contracts are limited to work done under an agent of the company.
