Customer Question
Hello, I resigned from...

Hello, I resigned from a contract position from a non-profit agency and the director refused to pay my last two months of wages. After attempts to recover funds I filed a small claims suit. He is now countering suing and want a change of venue stating I cost him more money in losses becausing of resigning and now making blantant false statements against me. I have all supporting documenation and want to move forward with suit. Nearly each week I get threatening coorespondence from his attorney with the request to settle. I now want to include a libel defamation of character suit. I have evidence and witnesses supporting my claim. How can I stop the harassment and recover my held wages?

Lawyer's Assistant: Can you tell me where the nonprofit is registered?

LLC

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been officially filed? If so, what?

Yes. I file last month and recently advised via telephone that they filed a writ and counter suit

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

All for now

I have filed and awaiting a court date. They have counter suit for change of venue, attorney fees and a settlement. I do not want to settle because I have concrete written and audio evidence. Just looking for direction. They are now blatantly lying and I seeking guidance. I want to move foward with a hearing Also what can be done about the libel and defamation of character?

Whom are they lying to? To you? Or to someone else?
