I posted a question on here and got some good advice, and now I'm back for more.
First, the story. Neighbor calls up, asks to borrow money, and offers to repay the amount in two weeks plus 60% extra (buying business, getting SB and minority loans which come through on the sale, hitting it big, yada yada yada). Like a retard, I agree. Now its drug on and it doesn't seem like he's going to pay.
Now the question. I have, in writing, the original agreement. I'd like to sue for just the amount he borrowed (no interest, no fees, just what I'm out). Do the Texas usury laws potentially render my agreement null and void where I couldn't sue even if I wanted to?
For the lawyers around here, how much would I expect to pay to call and get legal advice?
