Hi, and Welcome back to JustAnswer, Thank you for requesting me,
I posted an Information Request last evening, but I do not see it here. The site has been experiencing some tech problems for two weeks now and we often lose information requests and Answers we send to customers, and yours was yet another one that was lost and is now floating around in cyberspace.
I am not surprised at what you wrote because I realized from the outset that neither the contractor (and I am usung the term loosely), nor his lawyer are based in reality and their actions prove it. I will be glad to look over your letter, how far have you gotten and what is your time frame ?
