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.

.

You may also be offered a phone call, but those don’t come from me and are offered by JustAnswer. If you have requested a phone call with an attorney, your request will post to other experts that do offer this service. When another attorney accepts your request you will get additional instructions.

.

I need to ask a few questions...

.

How long has the person owed you money?

.

When were they supposed to repay you?

.

When was the last time they made a payment?

.

How much do they owe you?

.

Do you have documentation for the loan?

.

.

thanks

i just want to know if i have a case and a legitamate chance of winning
Lawyer: Barrister, Attorney replied 10 months ago

Ok, as long as you have the agreement on your phone and proof that you made the loan, you can sue the person in small claims court under a breach of verbal contract action.

.

You don't need an attorney and the clerks will have the summons and complaint forms that you need to file to get the case started...

.

.

thanks

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.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
