Hello and thank you for the question.
are you asking how best to pursue the refund?
If you paid them by credit card, you may contest it as a chargeback
You may also consider a complaint to management and the BBB
A third option would be a civil lawsuit for breach of contract
Practically, having a consumer protection lawyer represent you on contingency would be most efficient
I can suggest a directory
would you like that?
can I clarify anything else?
please, I think it is a valid claim, do you think it is worth pursuing in a small claims court?
how much do you think it will cost to have a lawyer?
It is valid on basis of breach of contract and misrepresentation
having a lawyer handle on commission or flat fee not to exceed 1/3 of the amount would be reasonable
for which martindale.com and findlaw.com are good resources
so it will be a commission based
small claims court may also be navigated without a lawyer as a secondary option thereby saving on fees.
It should be
not all lawyers will work that way
but you need one who will
to limit your downside
I trust the answer is acceptable
and would ask that you rate it as excellent
yes, thank you very much
