How binding is a verbal contract between me and my brother in law? Posted on August 17, 2011

I have a small contracting company family business I have run for 6+ years. There was a situation where I was not around for about a month my brother in law was helping answer phone etc. The phone line was in my fathers name and he is retired. I was not around and father out of state so phone line put in brother in law name. When I returned after one month me and in law talked and agreed that phone would be put in my name soon as I reimbursed him for cost of the phone set up and monthly bill. I am trying to do this, but he is avoiding me and now wants 1000 dollars to switch the phone to my name. Do I have any options?
