As you alluded to, contacting an attorney to discuss all of the details at length would be helpful in determining the validity of any lawsuit. Unfortunately, the policies of Just Answer do not permit us to represent customers of this site or to provide direct referrals. However, we can point you in the right direction.
First, you should begin with your state bar association. The Wisconsin State Bar has a website, it is located at http://www.wisbar.org/.
The Milwaukee County Bar association has a similar site that will be more specific to your location. Their site is located at http://www.milwbar.org/.
Additionally, Martindale Hubbell is a national organization that rates attorneys across the country. Their website is located at http://www.martindale.com/.
Another nationwide website is located at http://www.avvo.com/. This site lists attorneys by geographic location and area of practice.
Each of these resources will have a wealth of information as to attorneys in your area that handle such cases. I would suggest you check each site out and you will surely find a great number of attorneys that meet your needs. Pick a few to meet with in person so that you can thoroughly explain your situation and then retain the one that you feel can best represent your interests.
Also, several customers have asked how they may direct a question to me in particular. If you specifically want me to assist you in your legal matter, just put "FOR JOSEPH" in the subject line and I will gladly pick up the question as soon as I am on-line.
I am going off-line for the evening. Please feel free to respond, if necessary, and know that I will be back on-line tomorrow.
Thank you for your patience.
Thank you on the reply and it seems that you expertice could and does lie in the area i seek legal council to assist me in further action or recourse against Motel-Six. Joseph, if you are in the Milwaukee area or near there, then i would like to discuss with you to take serious take legal recourse against Motel 6. Also, the next day, the 24th, i went to the front desk at check out at time, which was 12pm and complained to the Customer service rep at the front desk. I knew one of the reps from a previous business trip and told her what happened, as her jaw dropped in disbelief, as well as another front desk employee stood there in uttter amazment on what i was telling them what ocurred the night before. Then the owner step out and started to apologize to me and stating, "I am so sorry, how can i make this up to you....what can we do to make this wrong into a right". I said, " I am done talking and anything you offer couldn't couldn't make up for what i went through last night. I couldn't sleep and I'm just a wreck this morning, because i haven't slept. I am done talking to you guys and i'll be seeking legal council in this matter. The next person who will speaking to you will be my lawyer. I turned and walked out of the Motel 6 astablishment and walked away in disbelief on what i went through the night before.
