Hello! Thanks for coming to the site. My name is ***** ***** I am an attorney ready to answer your questions with top-quality service. Just a few quick things before we get started:
I’m sorry to hear you are having these problems with your legal issue. I know that can be frustrating. However, we can get this resolved quickly;
I always go for immediate responses, but I am occasionally called away for client meetings.
Is it ok if I take a few moments to review your matter and I’ll be right with you to discuss your issue?
Do you do business in the states at all?
Excellent! How much money do they owe you?
Thanks! When was the debt incurred? By that I mean how long has the bill been past due?
I see! And last question: why aren't they paying?
Thanks so much! I have everything I need. Bear with me a moment while I address your concerns.
This appears to be a breach of contract. A breach of contract simply means that one party was obligated to perform and they have either not performed or have said that they will not perform. (Restatement (Second) of Contracts.) This applies regardless of whether the agreement was written or done orally. Typically, the aggrieved party is entitled to be returned to the same position they were in before the breach. You have some options you can explore:
The quicker, informal option is to send a demand for performance. Performance being the payment of some money or engaging in some required action. You can find breach of contract templates online for cheap: (https://williamslawsd.com/shop/ols/products/breach-of-contract-letter)
You can file a lawsuit in a Dade County court. If you’ve already sent a bunch of letters, then the truth is this is the only way to compel them to do anything. Given how much money is involved here, you will likely need to hire a Florida-based attorney to assist.
I don’t have any specific contacts; however, I can do the next best thing.
One thing I recommend is going through your state’s lawyer referral service (LRS). The LRS typically only lists experienced attorneys who have adequate staffing to assist people. Below is a link to a website that compiles the state lawyer referral services:
Yelp.com is a surprisingly good place to find lawyers.
Sometimes, the local law schools can provide free legal assistance, too. Yelp.com is a surprisingly good place to find lawyers.
You can also return to this site and ask questions to me as you go through this process to keep your costs down.
What other questions did you have for me today that I can help you out with?
1. So the cost to file is usually less than $300 USD. Attorneys fees would make it more expensive of course;
2. Also, non-payment disputes is a breach of contract, so it's the same action.
Did you have any other questions for me about this today?
You bet! Thank you for trusting JustAnswer with your question. If you have any additional concerns, or need me to clarify anything, please let me know. I am happy to help.
