Customer Question
My daughter was recently...

My daughter was recently married in Truckee, CA and the photographer she hired has disappeared. She works in Reno in management for one of the hotels in Reno. His website has been taken down, he is not returning phone calls. Of course he has been paid in full. What course of action would you suggest?

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps has your daughter taken? Have they filed any papers in family court?

To my knowledge she has only tried contacting him by phone.

Lawyer's Assistant: Family law varies by state. What state are they in?

They live in Reno, NV but the Photographer is from Boise, ID.

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

Does the Reno paper have a group that handles things like this. I am in FL but we raised our children in Chicago. The Chicago Tribune has a group called "What's my problem". When they think someone has been scammed they step in to help resolve the problem or recovery $$. The local TV stations often do this as well. Does Reno have anything like this?/

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.
