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... Read more »

Legally, yes you can sue the original electrician for not performing his work in a good and workmanlike manner.
But I would be very skeptical about the electrician having non-exempt assets from which you may be able to collect any judgment based on your statement that “he needed work.”... Read more »

You're probably not out the $1,500. I would give them more time to conduct their investigation. If you haven't committed fraud, there's likely nothing to fear.
There are a lot of reason TD Ameritrade would put a hold on your funds; namely, you seem to be using a brokerage... Read 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.

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.

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... Read 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... Read 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.

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.... Read more »
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.

You may be sued without any attempt for the lender to take back the vehicle.
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?
answered on Mar 26, 2023
They are not required to notify you before having an attorney contact you.
You can contest the debt or negotiate a payment.

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.

You should ask a question if you’d like a response to get you started in assessing the situation.

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...

I was in a serious car accident. I have been sold two lemons from two different car lots. I feel that I have been mislead and taken advantage of by both of them. I am seeking the justice I deserve.

Contact an attorney to discuss your options. The lemon law only applies to new vehicles but there may be other avenues for you if the vehicles were used.

It will depend on how their names are listed on the account. Things as simple as “and” and “or” can make a big difference. It is worth a brief conference with an attorney to determine your daughter’s rights to the account, especially if it can avoid the necessity of filing probate.

An attorney would need to review the terms of sale. Relevant considerations would be the contract terms, which state's laws apply, and whether there was a mutual mistake.
