law suit for breech of contract and slander and maicious maligning of character
I wrote a book for a man who agreed to pay me $1800 plus for a manuscript, for photo editing, laying his book out in pubisher format, and lots of other stuff. it has been a year and no payment. I petitioned Kindle and had the book taken off of the shelf, I was told since both of our names are on it, I should get half of the royalties. He had it printed and sold 125 plus copies for $18 and $25 a piece. Yet he refuses to pay me. We had a verbal agreement, he is dyslexic, promised via email to pay, via voict file many many times, and recently signed an E contract via email to pay according to a payment schedule. But I do not trust him to make the payments. He has also made nasty pictures of he and I, did a terrible job on picture editor u tmade it look like we are having sex and using vugar language and poses. I have a screen shot from where he posted it to one of his pages on FB and I have an entire transcript of it in chat. he says someone stole his phone, I do not believe him because when I called the number he answered and he has made up characters before pretending to be other people to make me feel sorry for him. I want to sue him for puttinng those pictures of me up all over social media and I want to retain an attorney to make sure he pays me what he owes me. Can you give me direction? I want him to know I'm not playing around. I got someone on fb who said he'd do it but he has not done anythng. so I am looking for someone to work on mybehalf in a timely fashion.
