To get an effective response, you are going to need to go back and revise or repost your question with a brief narrative of the situation: what occurred, nature of the relationship between the parties, where things occurred, whether there is documentation or other evidence, ... I do not see how you would be able to effectively pursue a case without someone appearing on your behalf, but an understanding of the background may help attorneys advise you about jurisdiction/venue, other options, possible contingent fee arrangements with an attorney, etc.

Someone must appear on your behalf. It can be you or an attorney.
