I helped my daughter and her husband sell their car to a young man. The person only had 1/2 of the cash and so gave them a contract for the remaining half as $2000 dollars worth of landscaping and clean up yard work here at the house.They have a signed generic agreement from the young man, his phone number a picture of his drivers license etc. He took the car at that time with the agreement that he would call and return on Saturday morning 7 May to begin the yard work and landscaping. He has not called or returned to do the work and does not answer the phone or return text or call.What recourse do we have? We are Kitsap County, Port Orchard, Washington.

We have an employee who quit and refuses to give back the

Hi. We have an employee who quit and refuses to give back the key. She already has her final paycheck and we gave her a letter asking for the key to be returned or to pay for the cost of rekeying the business. She says she never signed anything saying we wanted the key returned. What are our rights?JA: What state are you in? And have you consulted a local attorney?Customer: Oregon. And no, we have not. Mostly because rekeying only costs $79 and an attorney will cost us $200 for an hour.JA: Has anything been officially filed? If so, what?Customer: No. We just gave her a letter with her final check asking for the return or property by this Friday.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: She says she doesn't have to pay to rekey and she threw the key out. No, thank you!

I was the defendant in a small claims case and lost it. The plaintiff filed a writ of execution against me and a notice of a lien against a bank account number that the plaintiff gleaned from a check I once wrote him. That account was closed a few months ago. Will the bank be able to provide the Sheriff a different, open, account number to substitute for the one that was closed?

Not sure if this falls within "family law" perhaps I need

Not sure if this falls within "family law" perhaps I need something else but I manage my 17 yr old daughter who is a very successful Youtuber. We were approached by an MCN network that ensured they would help her grow her channel, pitch her deals and promote her. In 12 months they did absolutely zero and has grown from 25K in subscribers(following) to over 1 million subscribers in a year without their help but mine. Our contract was coming to a close this year and I missed the date. When I approached them with why they did not send me an email or a courtesy call from her Digital Manager I was furious and they told me the contract automatically renews. I sent an email to the VP and he ensured me he would help us out this year since my daughter grew so much he would like to offer a better percentage rate of 90/10 and he told me I would have a new contract end of day. He never sent it and that was my last talk with him. He gave me over to a new Digital Manager who has been slow to get anything done. That deal he offered me was reneged and the new DM offered me a new contract that was extremely controlling more so than the prior and I recently turned it out after 1 month of deliberating with their legal team! I am beyond furious with the company as many others feel the same way and they are known to be a money hungry company and never helping talent. What can I do as I feel there is breach of contract here. Thanks for your help!!
