What kind of lawyer should i get and what do i need to do? he wont give me the title or a refund i do have the truck.
Look for a Consumer Protection attorney or a Contracts attorney.
Best of luck!

Given your circumstances, you would want to talk to a lawyer familiar with consumer law. If the title is genuinely lost as the seller claims, you could apply for a new title on that basis. Best of luck to you.
You need a consumer protection attorney, or a contracts attorney. at 15K, you needs someone familiar with district court procedure as your damages are too high for small claims court. You don't want to go to district court pro se.

Title means everything. If you don't have the title to the truck, you don't legally own it. Most states require that the selling dealer deliver a title to the buyer within a certain number of days and that if your name is not on the title then legally you have no interest in the vehicle. If you did not get a valid title, then you should talk to a Contract Law or Consumer Law attorney right away about how the law in your state works in your case and what you can do about it. The remedies for a violation also are different from state to state but they usually let the buyer decide if they want to cancel the transaction or force the title to be transferred to the buyer, if that is possible. You really need to talk to a local Consumer Law attorney who deals with this kind of case and can tell you how your law works. You can go to this web site page for a Free Online 50 State National List of Consumer Law Lawyers (http://www.ohiolemonlaw.com/ocll-site/ocll-locate_local.shtml) and find one near you (lawyers don’t pay to get listed here and most of them are members of the only national association for Consumer Law lawyers, NACA.net). You can also look for one here on Avvo under the Find a Lawyer tab. Or you can call your local attorney's Bar Association and ask for a referral to a Consumer Law attorney near you. But act quickly because for every legal right you have, there is only a limited amount of time to actually file a lawsuit in court or your rights expire (it's called the statute of limitations), so don't waste your time getting to a Consumer Law attorney and finding out what your rights are.
