I loaned $5000 to a friend who just wouldn't pay it back. My friend is a lawyer and I reached out to him to get some help. My friend notified me that I must take legal action and take the defendant to small claims court. The small claims lawyer he referred me to quoted $175 / hour and a minimum of 15 hours. I couldn't afford that much and found Recourse on Google. A case manager was assigned to my case that called me within an hour to introduce himself and explain the process. They provided the initial paperwork on the same day and I was able to get a court date the next day. My case manager made sure the summons was served and notified me when the sheriff delivered it. All my evidence was unorganized in emails and text messages. The case manager asked me to send him everything and he organized everything for me in a PDF format which I was able to print and take with me to court. I won my case and received a judgement. The case manager helped me put a lien on the defendant's assets and within 60 days I finally got my money back!
