This is written in my settlement agreement that payment would be sent to counsel and my attorney stated the other attorney sent payment to another location like the check is lost
answered on Mar 5, 2023
A Virginia attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. It means that plaintiff waives further notification of settlement payment being sent, other than the initial notice made to the attorney. It sounds like the opposing attorney sent check to a wrong location, and that... Read more »
When I was able to occupy the home I pulled up the carpet to find there was no hardwood floor. According to the VCPA I have a case against them

Yes, it sounds like there was a misrepresentation re the hardwood floors, so you may have a valid VCPA claim. I'm sure anyone who responds would be happy to help if you decide to hire a lawyer. Good luck.
After looking for lenders for my loan. I was told by the finance rep to put down 2k to cover the tax and other fees at least due to the amount of the loan. At that moment, it wasn’t my intention to do so but I felt pressure to do it. Can I use any consumer law on this case?
answered on Feb 10, 2023
The facts as presented in the question unfortunately are unclear as to what basis there would be for a consumer law claim.
Is there a claim of fraud or deceptive business practices? Just because you intended to do one thing and ended up doing another - does not by itself indicate fraud.... Read more »
We originally paid to store the RV but the owner also does repairs so we went ahead and had him do our external repairs. Was given a quote we agreed to. Maintained contact with him and when he was ready to start our repair he would not take a credit card over the phone so I requested he send me... Read more »
answered on Jan 25, 2023
At this point, I think you have to send a letter through a law firm or file a lawsuit. Hopefully, the RV is still at the property, but you really have no way of knowing (unless you can see it through the gate). I'm sure anyone who responds would be happy to help if you decide to retain a firm.... Read more »
I was contacted by a law group saying I owed on an old credit card debt. They're saying the last time they tried to contact me was 2016 from a card I obtained before 2010.

Credit card lawsuits typically involve two different jurisdictions - the issuer's home state and the borrower's home state, and the shorter of the two may apply in Virginia. In Virginia Code Section 8.01- 232, there are three conditions on the enforceability of a waiver of the right to... Read more »

I've been served warrant on credit card that was opened online and payments stopped more than 3 years ago. This account was opened by my ex husband in my name but I can't prove this. Statute of limitations would be easier.
answered on Jul 7, 2022
I assume you mean a warrant in debt, which is a contract-based claim in general district court. First piece of advice is to absolutely appear and ask for a trial to dispute the debt. Second, in Virginia, you have the right to request all the documents that gave rise to the debt. This is called... Read more »
Hi! I am having an issue with a vehicle dealership in VA not sending the NCDMV a corrected title. The original title sent at purchase omitted the VIN number.

I suggest filing a complaint with the Virginia equivalent of North Carolina DMV theft or car dealer... Read more »

they’re refusing to fix the issues it had when i purchased the vehicle that were not told to me and refusing to give me money back this vehicle should’ve never had a new inspection sticker
answered on Mar 19, 2022
If the vehicle was represented to you as "new" and it was not new, then you have a claim. If you have a warranty, the warranty should cover these repairs regardless. If you decide to hire an attorney, I'm sure anyone who responds would be happy to help. Good luck.

Your recourse is to file a breach of contract lawsuit against the dealership. It will be your burden of proof to persuade the Judge that your claims are proven by a preponderance of the evidence.

Its almost impossible to answer this question in a vacuum. There are too many variables. You say your "LAST" theft charge. You didn't say your "only other" theft charge. If this is your third or more theft charge, there is a higher probaility of at least SOME jail time.... Read more »
