We shipped a product with Southwestern Motor Transport that interlined the delivery with Daylight Transport. We filed the claim with Southwestern whom states it is Daylight Transport place to pay the claim. They further stated if Daylight Transport does not pay them for the claim they will not pay...

Your contract is apparently with SW Transport. Read the contract as it will have some disclaimers of liability. But it may give SW as your agent the power to hire another party to perform the contractual duty. If under $ 25K you might sue both carriers in Sessions Court and let them blame each...Read more »
Went to my former employer got booked in and given a court date. My question is since I have never been on this side I am not sure what kind of attorney I need to speak with over this matter?! I live in the country side my neighbor is claiming my dog roams at large and killed one of her chickens….
As as a former LEO you know to keep your mouth shut, including on this forum. Take care of your dog for awhile so no further trouble erupts. Hire about any decent, competent attorney to represent you, as you need him to talk to the DA. Be prepared to make Restitution, probably at the first...Read more »
You can try to get the Sheriff to get a Warrant, but it is doubtful. Put together proof of payment, the Contract, and the actual owner's Deed. More than likely You are left with suing your contracting party for breach of contract, fraud, and any other appropriate causes of action. Hire a...Read more »

You need to post this question in Indiana, not Tennessee. But usually you have to do what the Probation Officers say regardless, or they will violate you... And you are the one that goes to Jail or Prison. They may assign you another PO in time, but do not complain now.
I do not know what "Adv Fin amt" is, but you need to be concerned with what amount you are being sued for as shown on the Civil Warrant. You might talk to the lawyer which sued you, which should also be on the Warrant. But be careful of what you say and require a paid in full receipt...Read more »
Unless you can prove there is some connection between the code guy and the purchaser, you will not be able to set aside the contract for fraud. However you may want to read your contract, verbatim. Even if you breach it, the primary recourse for the buyer will be Specific Performance. Hire...Read more »
My situation is that the acquittal was entered into record on 12/12/2019. The verdict was actually given on 12/11/2019. The Civil summons was filed on 12/11/2020. February had a leap year so from 12/11/2019 to 12/11/2020 is 366 days.
As far as I know all SOLs run in years not days. There are just a few 6 month SOLs. These include both criminal charges and civil causes of actions. What is your question? Because the Statutes use years, leap years are not a concern. But Non Court days usually extend SOLs one or two days by...Read more »

Obviously CA is not another Country, so Hague Convention has no jurisdiction. Circuit Judges are going to want alot more attempts at service than a letter which they are not required to receive. Hire a competent attorney today and get him to research your Defendant much more thoroughly. The way...Read more »

Yes, you can file suit for Breach of Contract in General Sessions Court of the County of the Defendant's residence. Circuit and Chancery Courts are also available. But I recommend hiring a collection attorney after you get a Judgment.
Use the search function on this website, or any other website, to find an attorney local to you. I would recommend you interview as many attorneys as you need to determine who may best be able to serve you and your needs.
