Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
If he won't come back and finish the clean up, then your recourse here is go get a couple estimates from other contractors about what it would cost for them to clean up and then file a small claims court action against friend's son for breach of contract.
The court clerk will have the summons and complaint forms you need to file and you don't need an attorney. Once you file, the clerks will help with getting the sheriff to serve the summons on the person. Then you just come to court and tell your story to the judge and get your judgment.
But realistically, once the person gets served with the lawsuit, if he has any sense, he will just contact you and then come clean it all up so he doesn't have to go to court..
