This email appears to be a scam. First, the case number is not a valid Missouri number. Second, there would not be a "Warrant for Search and Seize", or anything like that, issued in a civil collections case. Finally, it is a dead giveaway when these scams use language like...View More
Signed as a co-signer in 2015 to help her out stayed 2 months to help set up and we separated, we’re going into a heated custody battle while doing record searches and requests i found a judgment against me from 2016. I was never served she was and didn’t notify me the Original debt was 3-4k... View More
I agree with Mr. Pennell about the dangers of co-signing.
For a judgment that is older than one year, the good-cause/meritorious defense bit doesn't apply. Those are the requirements to set aside a default judgment. For your judgment, if you were not properly served, you'd...View More
The sub-contractor was brought onto the job because he “needed work”. His duty was to rough in all electrical work. We are finding loose wires that are hot, wires that do not go to anything, and overloaded breakers caused by too many lights/receptacles on a circuit. We are now paying another... View More

You pose good questions. I file lots of Telephone Consumer Protection Act class actions and can tell you that this is a hot area of law, because my cell phones are now both personal and business lines. Text messages are a bit different. I suggest you have an attorney. The calls and texts raise...View More
We purchased a puppy from a breeder in MO (were in a different state) that advertises family friendly dogs. Our vet behaviorist confirmed our pup was born was severe behavioral issues (anxiety, aggression, and more). Many trainers also agree. Puppy is unresponsive to meds, and due to the severity...

Unless your contract contains an arbitration clause, then of course you may sue the breeder, assuming you are willing and able to pay to litigate in Missouri. Have an attorney review the contract and assess whether you'd have a strong claim. Sorry that your pub isn't what you expected or desired.
My mom passed away in July of 2019 however she had 3 class lawsuits and they are now coming to be settled and I get these closing statements, and the lawyer's fees are up there. Ill just say that. Can lawyers just charge whatever on these cases? Just in case you need to know, I don't... View More
For any class-wide settlement, the court must approve the award of attorney's fees and expenses. There is no universal maximum, but one-third of the settlement fund, plus reimbursement of out-of-pocket expenses, is common.
I have reach out the the realtor cause I didn’t buy the house as is all these problems was supposed to be fix and they are just giving me the run around what can I do cause I feel I have been taken advantage of
Schedule an appointment with a local attorney to review the sale contract and provide options. The mere fact that there are problems with the house doesn’t make the seller liable but perhaps you can prove a claim for failure to disclose defects.
I defaulted on a secured loan. I paid on it for a long time but the loan wasn't getting any smaller. I couldn't afford it anymore. They never came after my car that I secured the loan for but they have just been sending me papers saying they want the money. I never hid the vehicle from... View More
My medical debt was "sold" to a collection agency (the hospital owns the collection agency). I have never rec'd a bill from this collection agency but all of the sudden we rec'v a letter from a lawyer. Do they not have to notify you by mail of the debt? What do you do in this case?
The summons is from Gamache & Myers for World acceptance corporation, AC Breach of Contract. Apparently they've been trying to serve me at an old address for like 6 months. It's from a loan that I supposedly took out in 2016, which attached is the unsolicited check I apparently... View More
Why they waited is irrelevant. Unfortunately, a lot of interest can accrue in 6 years. If you were served then you need to appear in court or hire an attorney to prevent a default judgment. You can submit written discovery to learn the facts and supporting documents, if any.
The vehicle has been left at my house over a year, I'm asking bout storage fees, but there is lein for default on the loan. The loan is over 10 years old. What options do I have as far as getting lein released to register the car or atleast get storage fees. But I don't want the debt or... View More
If there is a lien on the vehicle, you should first contact the lien holder and see if they would be interested in releasing the lien based on the age and abandonment of the vehicle. If they are unwilling to do so, your best bet is to tell them to come pick up their vehicle. I am unaware of a way...View More
process started and if I didn't want the boat once it was built, they would sell it at their dealership. I electronically signed the paperwork but they did not. About a month later I received a Final purchase agreement from the bus. manager and it was for $9,000 less. I liked that price so I... View More
They are withholding the title, so the answer to your question of whether they can hold the title is "yes." The better question is whether you would be in strong legal position if you were to sue. Any attorney would need to review your contract and be hired in order to give you sound...View More
We had bought our solar system from Green Solar Technologies out of California. They had subtracted our system out to 4 different installers from 2019 until today. They have failed to pay the contractors enough to complete the job and my system is still not set up correctly to this date. I want to... View More
The first step is to contact a Missouri attorney to review the contract. The contract may have a forum-selection clause (which specifies where any lawsuit must be file) or an arbitration provision (which would prohibit suing in court). The attorney would also explain to you the potential remedies....View More

My insurance company used a bias company to estimate loss. The inspection was not thorough and I was pressured to accept a completely unreasonable lowball offer. I complained to my agent and received a call from the supervisor saying they will send a third-party inspector over to inspect the... View More
A Missouri attorney could advise best, as your question could involve elements of state-specific law. In terms of what you could do, one option is to arrange a brief consult with an attorney experienced in property damage/fire claims. In terms of pressure to accept an offer, if a release had been...View More
