Customer Question
Hi there just wanted...

Hi there just wanted to know what my legal rights are

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

I have a friend that i lent money to pay for a car

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

No

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

The thing is he paid $500 for a second hand car and it needed a full service plus it had some mechanical problems that needed fixing straight away, he had no money at the time so i lend him the sum of $1, 000

Good Afternoon

If it was a loan even though there is no written agreement it is binding.

You can send him a letter of demand and if he does not repay you then you can sue.

If it was cash then it is your word against his. If you deposited it into his account this is evidence you can use.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you wish a phone call please elect for one but be aware it will be an additional fee. If there is nothing further thank you for using my services.

If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know

If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.

Please do not forget to leave positive feedback.

Regards
Leon

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
