I paid a down payment on some windows in November 2021. I canceled the order because the company kept changing the installment date. The owner claims to have mailed my refund but the check was returned to him and he cancel it. He text me a copy of another check that he wrote on May 23, 2022, and... Read more »
In this situation, the window provider is in breach of contract for failing to fulfil their terms of the agreement. Your best bet is going to be to either hire a lawyer in Mississippi or perhaps Arkansas to sue the provider for breach of contract.
The hired contractor was paid in full prior to the completion of his services. Unfortunately, the contractor did not complete the repair services. In the process of his services, he performed a makeshift repair that ultimately failed. Several attempts were made to reach the contractor thereafter... Read more »
From the looks of it, you have a civil suit against the contractor under several theories, with the obvious one being breach of contract. The main thing that you need to worry about is the statute of limitations, because, depending on some of the details, that statute could run (meaning that you...Read more »
Any Mississippi lawyer can help you with this issue; however, if you are alleging that someone stole from you or a family member, the thing to do would be to contact law enforcement to file a complaint with them so that an investigation and arrest can be completed.

My significant other, who has questionable reasoning skills, at best, due to a major stroke, paid cash (quite a bit) to a “friend” for an “antique” vehicle. (As a matter of fact, I have durable POA.) When attempting to resell the vehicle, it was determined the vehicle does not match the... Read more »

She said she had me... Read more »
A Mississippi attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for four weeks. At this point, you could reach out to attorneys who handle such cases, but keep in mind that such matters would not be likely to be handled on a contingency basis. Good luck
My father passed a few months prior to a settlement being reached in a class lawsuit. I reached out on his behalf and was told to submit necessary documents(death certificate, affidavit, etc).

I bonded a friend out of jail and paid the bonds person $1000. Not even 12 hours later they picked him back up and said he wasnt ever supposed to be bonded out because he had a hold with the department of corrections. Can I get my $1000 back? Who regulates bond companies?
Unless you can convince the bond guy to return your money you are out of luck. Why? Because they will say that they did their job--kept your friend out of stir--and are entitled to keep the bond you paid. Lesson learned: Don't bond out any more friends.
The statute of limitations starts on the date of last activity on your account. This could be the date you last made payment, but it could also be the date you last used the account, made a promise to pay, entered a payment agreement, or acknowledged liability for the debt.

Manufactured 2015, purchased 2016, tandem trailer with axles > 2000lbs gvw each was sold to me without brakes (unbeknownst to me). Is there any course of action I can take with the dealer (to get the brakes installed at least at their cost, perhaps)? What would be the legal recourse?... Read more »
When you buy a trailer or any similar product, you should always do so by getting a written contract. You then need to read the contract and see what you are buying, and if it matches what you thought you were buying. If it does not, you should not sigh it. If there is no written contract, then...Read more »
