The contract amount is 20,875. This guy is a lawyer and a bully. He refuses to pay or allow us to finish minor details. What can we do? He also left a nasty google review full of lies

I see three remedies:
1. A construction lien. I am not going to write up all of the steps because it is somewhat complicated and we don't have enough facts to determine whether the remedy is available.
2. A lawsuit against your customer to collect the balance.
3. A... Read more »

Possibly. Have you tried contacting the seller to ask for your money back in exchange for the truck bed?
If you give a friend $3000 to take you for a stat CT scan and take you to the ER and you gave this money under extreme anxiety and emotional distress because you're a widow with no one to help you, and later when calm you ask how they could do that if they're your friend, and now you... Read more »

No. The more legal question becomes whether this was a gift or transfer made under a contract. In either case, you are out that money. When you give someone a gift, you lose control once the transfer is made; if a contract, the money is theirs once you offered $3,000, they accepted it, and gave you... Read more »
My medical insurance company has a contract with a company that provide transportation and other services. The company has failed to provide over twenty rides to the doctor and physical therapy appointments. Can they be liable or held accountable for not accommodating.

A Michigan attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. Until you're able to speak with a local attorney to figure out if you have a case that's cost-effective to pursue, you could review your insurance policy to make certain of what it covers. In terms of a... Read more »
Volitle, mentally and emotionally abusive environment with another employee. Whom I found out he's sexually involved with

Possibly. Sounds like the makings of a lawsuit for which you should seek an employee-side civil litigator.
My Ford escape with EcoBoost engine blew up. This is a common problem there are class action lawsuits. Can I sue Ford in small claims court and would it be worth it.
answered on Jul 26, 2022
Can you? Yes. Should you? No. You need to understand that major corporations like Ford have entire departments full of attorneys working for them, any of whom would have a field day with a pro se litigant. The first thing they will do is remove the case to the general civil docket because 1)... Read more »

This is a matter of what's more important to you: do you want to be right, or do you want a relationship? And I suppose the same question could be posed to your mother.
I don't know enough facts to say whether your mom would win a lawsuit. You, though, would probably come out... Read more »
I had set agreements with my friend while living together for a few months but she chose to illegal put me out and refrain from letting get my personal belongings.
My friend stole all of my property I had furnished in her house while staying there a few months. Now she will not give it back.

Not sure if you have an illegal eviction action as much as a possible claim and delivery action, which you can initiate yourself in the district court.
A company called me 18 times, even though I’m on the national do not call registry, and have been since 2016 (I have proof of both, and the telemarketer recorded a voicemail every time).
Since I don’t have an existing relationship with the company, I understand each call allows me to... Read more »

I think you're right that you can sue them. I would try consulting a consumer rights attorney before trying it on my own. And I would plan to go ahead and sue in the general civil division (district court), not small claims. In small claims, neither party can have an attorney, and a business... Read more »

I think the safest course of action would be to contact the school and ask.
I rented a rental car out in my name for someone that rental car was impounded now the driver won’t respond and I’m getting hit with all the rental fees would I be able to sue him
answered on Apr 25, 2022
As a practical matter, you are dealing with someone who somehow got that rental car impounded...doesn't sound like a good risk to sign for anything.
You can sue whomever you like; but it doesn't sound like this person cares much about responsibility or likely what a judge says.... Read more »
Never had the opportunity to get my items until after the car was already gone from the tow yard. Car was sold by the time I got there. Items in trunk weren't recoverable which is over 3k in golf equipment. Company who did the tow falsified document saying I collected those items from trunk.... Read more »
answered on Apr 21, 2022
I suggest small claims court. It is inexpensive and quick. But you are going to have to have proof, (perhaps other witnesses), of the items that were in your vehicle. And values. For example the golf equipment, I suggest you provide the original receipts and then printouts of the same equipment... Read more »
I recently bought a condo and the seller agreed to share some repair costs with me. It was supposed to be done before we closed, which is why we don’t have anything signed but she got really sick at the end and didn’t get it taken care of fully. Only 2 things fixed vs 4 on the list. I tried to... Read more »

Enough? Anything's possible I guess. The fact that your evidence is mostly emails and texts doesn't dictate whether you have a winning case or not. There are ways to get those into evidence, so the trier of fact can weigh it. But keep in mind evidence is not proof.
Think if it... Read more »
My deductible was waved, because I am not at fault. I simply do not feel that I should have to pay for anything, when the other driver backed into me.
answered on Apr 11, 2022
You could sue, but generally, "no fault" means your insurance covers you, and the other driver's insurance covers them.

Keeping things in writing is oftentimes a good practice, and taking notes of your calls (diligently and consistently) might also be helpful. From a practical approach you might need to put together a more thorough contract that addresses these issues, this is a common theme for weddings. And if... Read more »
It was 3 increments of money I don’t have specific proof of. Vague texts and the proof of withdrawal from my account but nothing showing it went to him
answered on Feb 2, 2022
You might consider talking to a lawyer about this directly, but do a little research first through a legal aid website, on how to file a small claims lawsuit. That might help you direct your questions if you find a lawyer willing to answer a few questions. You could certainly hire a lawyer to help... Read more »
My trampoline flew into a pond owned by a privately owned golf course during a major wind storm. The trampoline was anchored down and was ripped out by the wind. I live in an HOA that is next to the golf course. The trampoline is destroyed. Am I responsible for cleaning it up out of the pond?
answered on Dec 14, 2021
What is the golf course owners saying? Even though it's an act of God, someone will still have to pay. Either the golf course will just do it on their own, or they will contact the HOA and the HOA will pay, and may end up tracing it back to you.
It may be worth your while to contact... Read more »
Hi, before my divorce (divorced for 2 years), I have cosigned a car loan for my ex-spouse (both of our names are on the title).

What does the judgment of divorce say about possession of the car? As to the bank - regardless of what the judgment says - they are going to hold you equally responsible for the balance.
