Customer Question
In 2014, I placed...

In 2014, I placed my Concert Performer electronic piano on consignment with THE PIANO COMPANY of Leesburg, Virginia. At the time, I lived in Haymarket, Virginia, but in 2015 I moved to Portage, Michigan. The piano sold in 2016, but I have so far not received any money from THE PIANO COMPANY. Can I sue in small claims court in Kalamazoo or Kalamazoo County so that I don't have to travel to Virginia to settle the issue.

Lawyer's Assistant: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

The state is in my typed message. Did you get this?

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?

There are other details, but you have the substance of the issue.

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.
