  • Yes I wrote a short novel titled ( Hitchhiking With An Angel ) pub. by authorhouse is there a way I can check sales record .

    Philip’s Answer

    You should have it in a contract that you are to receive the sales figures monthly or over some other period. Now, I would request them and see what happens or look at your contract. Maybe it says it in there somewhere that they will supply them to you upon request.

  • If my taxes were prepared by a company should I receive a payment voucher for paying my taxes by the company?

    Philip’s Answer

    If you know you owe taxes, pay them as fast as possible. The clock is ticking and interest is accruing. There are multiple ways to pay.

  • How much would it cost to sue sister for unpaid loan?

    Philip’s Answer

    Why don't you go to small claims court. The filing fees are minimal and it will be a small amount of time. Take all of the information you have (including evidence of her payment) and that will help your case. Get a judgment and if she doesn't pay, start garnishing her wages.

  • How do I sue a Property Management company and investor for non-payment on a verbal contract, but I have proof of services

    Philip’s Answer

    For future reference, if there was a contract in writing, you probably would be able to put a construction lien on the property (if you did an improvement) which would hold the property from being sold until your lien was taken care of. Unfortunately, there must be a writing to enforce a construction lien. Keep that in mind next time you take a job. The writing helps your contract claim but also gives you rights to lien the property.

  • What will i do for a below minimum wage and no tax

    Philip’s Answer

    It sounds like there are multiple issues in your statement. As the other attorney said, were you an employee? Did your employer (if you were an employee) report the wages? If not, did you receive a 1099 for independent contractor work? Did you report the wages on your tax return? These are just to name a few.

  • When an employees work hours was reduced from 40 to 20, how long can they get unemployment benefits for reduced work?

    Philip’s Answer

    She is working and collecting unemployment benefits at the same time? Is she reporting the income when she calls MARVIN? Are you reporting the wages to the UIA? There are some facts that are missing in this question. Call an experienced attorney.

  • I have a dispute over who covers a buyer's refund when the item was not received. What can I do?

    Philip’s Answer

    I think you need to read the terms of the agreement with Ebay and the USPS and also print some type of receipt for the insurance you allegedly purchased (if you in fact purchased it). If you are armed with the proper evidence that you purchased insurance or that the item was insured in some form, then you need to contest it with Ebay or USPS.

  • Can I sue the primary owner of a private student loan I co-signed for because she is not making payments

    Philip’s Answer

    You can sue this person for whatever money you pay. Just because you guaranteed the loan, doesn't mean this person is off the hook to you too. Contact me if you need assistance.
