In the attorney's responce he claims his client did not sign the contract. I have text messages and emails telling me to proceed with what I billed for. I had permission to do drawings for his project and order materials. He went to the store and paid for the materials. I have the receipt in my companies name. Also drawings and layout of his project done by me. He got a copy from store and hired a different contractor! Cheaper...also I spent a day picking up supplies for his garage shelves, and tiles for new home, of which he refuses to pay for my time. And my laborer...attorney is threatening to counter that I turned down the job on Oct 22. Then proceeds to mention my estimate dated Oct 24th lol. Guy can't even realize his dates don't work. He said he will counter with lost time to find a new contractor, and breach of contract. Although he says his client never signed one....I take it this attorneys not very bright, as he contradicts himself on all aspects of his letter.
