Q. I thought I was signing a credit card receipt at Retro Fitness and now they are saying I signed a contract!
A: There are defenses that you could make that there was no contract. The best course of action is to seek an attorney familiar with contract law and have them write a letter to Retro Fitness with the legal reasons no contract was formed. Many times, when the other party sees a letter from an attorney and they do not have a good argument that a contract was formed, they will sign a document stating that they agree with you that no contract was formed.

If you have further questions you can contact me directly.

Q. Hello, do I need a permit to advertise about an event that my non-profit is hosting? We have flyers and other papers
A: The answer to this question depends upon the county where you will be distributing the flyers. Even though you are not selling anything, the township may deem that handing out the flyers is a form of soliciting contributions, and there are townships that require permits for such an activity.
Q. Recently put deposit down French drain system due to financing job was never done how do I get deposit back
A: It is sad to say that often it requires a letter from an attorney to get a quick resolution to a matter. It may be as simple as having a business attorney draft a letter to the company, however, without seeing the documents that were signed, it is not possible to say that your situation can be resolved in this manner. If I were you, I would consult with an attorney and provide them with the document you signed when you placed the deposit. The attorney will be able to tell you what legal rights you have and hopefully it is simply a matter of writing a letter.

Wishing you the best of luck in getting your deposit back.
