We finished the customer's roof yesterday and they were happy with the work and paid us with a check. Today, they said they were unhappy with a portion of the roof that is perfectly fine and they put a hold on the payment check. Can they do this?
A Wisconsin attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. The first thing to check is whether there is a problem with the work that you were not aware of. However, if the work is satisfactory and meets contract specs, then you could reach out to local attorneys to...View More
in longer form i am wondering if my friend using his money can trade stocks based on advice that I give him and give me a split of the profit. The reason I don't know if this is legal is because my father working at a Hegde fund and therefore my ability to trade stocks is highly regulated and... View More
A Wisconsin attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a month. As a GENERAL matter, it might depend on what the rest of the terms of the guarantee outline as remedies for a consumer in the event of less-than-full satisfaction.

Basically, I want to purchase on-demand liability insurance for independent contractors that get jobs through my site and I want to know if it is illegal to make this purchase as if I am them if I have their consent in signature form.
A Wisconsin attorney could answer best, but your question remains open for three weeks. Insurance is generally governed by state laws, but as a general matter, if information falls through the cracks and the carrier raises a defense that they were not provided with accurate information as to a...View More
Yes, it is possible. You will want to review the Wisconsin LLC Law under "SUBCHAPTER XII MERGER; CONVERSION" - Here is the statute: https://docs.legis.wisconsin.gov/statutes/statutes/183/XII/1207. If the other company is not a Wisconsin LLC, the steps may be different, but every...View More
You posted this in Business Law, a logical choice, but that might be why it hadn't been picked up by an employment law attorney, who is really the person you want input from. You could repost and add Employment Law as a category. As a general legal premise for all areas of law, the practice of...View More
Signed an advertising deal with Wisconsin based company which I am now in the process of terminating by way of paying an early termination fee. My question is since they failed to inform me of my right to terminate and no where on the contract does it state it, do I have grounds for a complaint?... View More
Unfortunately, not every written contract is required to have a free "I've got second thoughts and want an early out" clause. In fact, you should be glad the contract even has an "early termination fee" clause, because that is not required everywhere either.
I signed contract in Ga with representative from a Wisconsin company. I am 22 and representative took me to fancy place and offered food/drinks I got caught up and signed a pretty bad deal. I will pay their early termination fee if have to but seems a little unfair. The salesperson told me that if... View More
Unless you signed the contract less than a week or ten days ago the "cooling off" clause has probably expired. Claiming to have been taken advantage of because the sales guy plied you with fancy food and expensive booze while he was convincing you to sign the "bad deal" will...View More
These businesses are supported financially by the others during the off season. They have a substantial amount of debt that is personal and the businesses. My father wants to file bankruptcy right away before trying to sell assets and my mother does not agree with him. He wants to keep one business... View More
This is such a complex question with so many variables that it is impossible to properly answer here. It depends on whose name and how assets and liabilities are held as to what the proper action. Each can file separately if necessary, but generally speaking both parties are best served by filing...View More
Yes. You cannot collect any money from the debtor unless they filed a reaffirmation agreement, but you are entitled to possession of the vehicle if they are not paying for it. Consulate a local attorney who call help you reclaim the car.
In Sept, we got a rough estimate from a local tree trimmer to remove 3 branches from a tree overhanging our home. He was too busy for such work at the time. We agreed to wait until he was free, then we would revisit the estimate and specify the specific work we were looking at. 5 months later,... View More
Based on your facts, it does not seem that you had a contract. A contract requires a meeting of the minds (i.e. exactly what work would be done, when and the cost). As I understand your situation, you wanted 3 limbs removed, which did not include one containing a woodpecker nest. You asked to...View More
I used to own a shop doing custom automotive paint. A year and a half ago, a customer made $1,000 cash deposit... and then got sent to prison for stalking and violating his parole. He obviously missed his appointment date, no reply to any of my calls or texts. I had already ordered his materials... View More

This business owner owes me over $10,000. I texted him and emailed him asking him to pay me back but he just ignore me. I can mail a demand letter to him but my guess is he won't read it. I just want to start this process. How should I start? Thanks!
