Thank you for your follow up.

Who is "he"? Who did you have a verbal agreement with?

Brian H Gerber apt 801 ***** Miami Beach, FL###-##-#### ***** he owe me $750
Employment Lawyer: Alex Esquire, Attorney at Law replied 1 year ago

Thank you for your follow up.

I do not need this person's name or address.

Generally, someone in a situation similar to your, can file a small claims court case against the person who failed to make a payment according to the verbal agreement and here is the link to the Florida Courts website that explains small claims court process:

http://www.flcourts.org/resources-and-services/family-courts/family-law-self-help-information/small-claims.stml

It is important to gather all the evidence and witnesses (if any) that show the existence and terms of the verbal agreement before the trial date, since verbal agreements are generally difficult to enforce.

I wish you the best of luck!

What do I do if im living in NY
Employment Lawyer: Alex Esquire, Attorney at Law replied 1 year ago

Thank you for your follow up.

Unfortunately, the case has to be filed where the party who breached the agreement resides, so if you are unable to file and pursue the case yourself, then a local Florida attorney would have to be hired, but you still would have to show up in Florida court and testify at the trial.

I wish you the best of luck.
