You appear to have a fiduciary relationship with the management company. This means that you have rightfully and legally placed trust and confidence in the management company to protect and manage your property and money. As a fiduciary the management company owes you a duty of loyalty and due care. He must not place his own interests above yours as this management company seems to have done. Therefore you may have an action against the company for breach of fiduciary duty. If you prevail in your action you may be entitled to attorneys fees, court costs, actual damages that resulted from the breach and punitive damages ( damages in an amount to punish).More often than not an attorney will not call back unless the person is a pre-existing client.
