I was wondering if anyone can give me some advice on what I could do. I will start by telling you that this is not a major case but has anyone ever
gotten screwed by local courts because of someone who your against knows someone in the county that you live in?
I am a small landscaper and lawn care professional, I have contracts for maintaining customers property during the growing season. The problem arose
two seasons ago when one of my customers failed to pay me for the work I had done and after numerous attempts to collect the balance I filed a claim
in small claims court in our town.
The signed contract I have is very very clean cut and detailed in regards to the work to be preformed, as well as payment terms. I am very very
frustrated because the person who I am taking to court must have a friend on the inside because the terms of the contract are being ignored. I despise
the fact that there is just no justice. The case is not large enough for me to hire a lawyer only $150. But from my stand point it is the principal, I
will be god damed if I will just let this arrogant SOB get the better of me. I am a hard working family man who gives a "fair days work for a fair
Does anyone know how I could make sure this is handled fairly. He has already manipulated the dates for the case to make sure they inconvenienced me
corruption is wrong! no matter what scale it is on.
I hope someone has some Ideas, Thank you for your time
