Rosenberg, TX asked in Business Law, Civil Litigation, Contracts and Small Claims for Texas

Q: Hi! what kind of lawyer do I need? I loaned an individual/ LLC $26K, a notarized contract was signed.

The contract was signed last year 7/21. After the money was sent, the individual vanished. I tried several times to collect payment. The money was indented and written for the investment of an 18- wheeler truck. The contract also stated I could have rights to drive. At this time I'm not sure if this individual used the the money for the intended purpose in the contract or if this was a scam/ fraud..... The individual is linked to 2 LLCs...1 in Georgia and 1 in Louisiana. I believe that he resides in both states.....

I am a teacher, single mother....I want to win the case and get my money back!

A: You most likely need a debt collection attorney in the state where the LLC on the loan contract is located and where the individual resides.
