First, exhaust your efforts to get paid without hiring an attorney. If that doesn't work and enough money is at issue hire an attorney. Most attorneys could send a letter and many could file suit if necessary.
I have a legal question regarding forming an investment newsletter business that is not registered as a financial adviser. Is this legal? I plan to send an email to paid subscribers based on trades I personally place. They are free to do what they want with the information. I plan to do business in... Read more »
Although I am not licensed to practice law in Georgia or Missouri I can tell you with some certainty that what you are trying to do--become a financial advisor--will require you to get some sort of license(s) regardless of where you live.
I'm not aware of any cases addressing you specific issue. The statute seems to contemplate either mailed notice or in-person delivery of the notice, because it states, "Cancellation occurs when the buyer gives written notice of cancellation to the seller at the address stated in the agreement."...Read more »
This last May, I won $500 in free airfare credit from a vaping website I use, named Breazy. I was told I would have my prize “no later than the 30th” of the month (so May 30th). It’s now almost mid October and still no prize. I’ve emailed and called many times. Filed a BBB complaint that... Read more »
I'm sorry to hear that Breazy won't keep its word. Filing suit in small claims court against an out-of-state company like Breazy won't do you much good for reasons that would take too long to explain in a short answer, but deal with your ability to collect the judgment if you get one. I suggest...Read more »
My wife and her business partner own their own photography company and were wanting me to dress up as the Grinch and photograph other people with the Grinch during Christmas. Obviously they would be paid for their services. They read somewhere about a photographer being sued by Dr Seuss and... Read more »
You could repost your question and add Intellectual Property to your categories. Attorneys who work in that area would be likelier to recognize the issues that concern you than ordinary Business Law/Business Formation attorneys. Good luck

FYI: The "Judiciary" does not "prosecute" anyone.

This is on a mattress. They think they can repo it at your at will without documentation to enter home. They want payment but will not except check but want currency. I remember when I bought the mattress the sales person wanted to know if I wanted used or new. I thought that was odd because I... Read more »
If the contract shows the amount due and the installment amount and any interest, then I'm not sure you've been wronged. Whether the business may break into your residence to nab the mattress is a separate issue.

The agreement refers to keeping its terms confidential. I don't see how your discussing your situation with someone prior to receiving the agreement could be a breach of the agreement. The last sentence you wrote, however, ends with "Custom" so I don't know what is missing. If you have concerns...Read more »
I loaned a start up business some money and obtained an unsecured promissory note because there were no assets. There have been no payments made on the note and the company now has assets, namely real property, Can a lien be filed against the real estate or any other assets the company now owns?
Unfortunately, an unsecured promissory note cannot justify a lien on the real property. However, if you file an action and get a judgment for the amount of money owed on the promissory note, the judgment can be filed against the real property if the name on your judgment and the name of the owner...Read more »

Missouri law provides, in the Merchandising Practices Act, that if someone suffers damage because of deception, that person is entitled to relief.
