Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help with your situation. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I type out an answer or reply.
If you are looking for a civil attorney to file suit against sister for the theft, unfortunately, I am not allowed to represent customers from the site or recommend anyone personally under my agreement with JustAnswer. However, these are a couple sites that we attorneys actually use if we need local counsel in a state where we aren't licensed. Further, customers have consistently reported good results with these sites:
They screen their attorneys based on geographic location, area of practice, time in practice, cost and customer reviews.
You would be looking for a civil litigation attorney to assist with any lawsuit, but you might also want to discuss the possibility of filing a criminal charge for the theft and see if local counsel thought that might be a good option. Even making the threat to sister might be enough to scare her into agreeing to repay the money rather than potentially be charged with a felony theft offense..
