Customer Question

Hello,I entered into an agreement to manage a restaurant for a small salary,and in essence(sweat to own) over a period of time.I left the business approx.3 years ago.
I left with suffiecient notice,and was expecting to be paid for the time I put in.At the time I thought that this was a verbal agreement,and after hiring an attorney to persue this,the fees added up quickly and I dropped it.
I have recently found written agreement showing that I might have a case.I am owed $9,600 for time put in.I know this isnt much information,but do you think this is worth the time and effort to recover my losses....Ty, ***** *****

Hello. Thank you for contacting me. I am a consultant here and I am looking forward to assisting you with your question.

Also, I can only answer/address the questions you ask specifically based on the information your provide. Please try to provide as much information as possible so I can best assist you.

The short answer is yes. If you are willing to put the time in and it makes sense for you, then you should pursue it. It all depends on how much you specifically value your time if you will be representing yourself pro se. If you are hiring an attorney, then you need to look at how much the attorney will cost you versus how much you stand to recover.
