If you hire a contractor to build a structure and you pay

If you hire a contractor to build a structure and you pay him then he refuses to build the structure or return your money when you cancel, what remedy do you have. It is above the typical small claims court but not enough that most attorneys are interested in taking case?

Cliffs notes. My business partner in South Dakota hired a

Cliffs notes.My business partner in South Dakota hired a lawyer, he has done work for our business and is handling his divorce. We found his lawyer failed to send a request for discovery 90 days after having it done and failed to send 3 out of 4 approved offers to his wife's attorney and lied by blaming it on her counsel which wasn't the case.Basically he is over billing for work he never did, failed to follow the instructions of his client, deceived his client as to what he was doing and in general didn't operate in the best interests of his client.He has been billed for this along without business items. As an example we have noticed he has billed us 3 hours for a 15 minute phone call.It seems the lawyer has opened a new business and no longer put much energy into his legal practice(with one other partner.)http://www.americanbar.org/groups/professional_responsibility/publications/model_rules_of_professional_conduct/model_rules_of_professional_conduct_table_of_contents.htmlIt looks like Our lawyer violated, there is still a $2000 open bill but I don't think anybody should have to pay for offers he failed to send and we should file a complaint against him to the bar.1.11.31.4-1-2-3-5b3.23.4-a-d8.4-*/1-cI know I need to write a letter here but what should I say or not say to make my complaint effective and easy to understand.http://www.statebarofsouthdakota.com/p/cm/ld/fid=45The State Bar of South Dakota222 E.CapitolPierre, SD 57501Thanks,

I just found out after working for nearly 6 years, that there is NO money in my 401K! I remember signing papers, but there is "no record" of it, naturally. I called my employer, I called Mass Mutual, and they say there is no record of it. That's the point I said. I want someone to be held accountable. Do they honestly think I'd work for 6 years for NOTHING? (Sorry, I'm VERY UPSET.) They're putting it on me, saying I should have noticed. Maybe so, but they don't make it easy to get a pay stub. They do everything electronically, and unless you install a special program,you can't access it on your home computer. Also can't access it on my work computer unless I go to The Command Center. Mostly, I don't. What I want is for someone to be held accountable, and back money for what should be in there. But it's my word against theirs. I know who people are going to believe.

I have a contract with an alarm monitoring company and I

Hello, I have a contract with an alarm monitoring company and I suspect numbers were altered after I signed the contract. I do not have a copy of the original. They sent me the copy of what they have and I can clearly see that there was a white out used where the numbers were written. They are not willing to break a contract. Is there anything I can do to break the contract?JA: Because laws vary from state to state, could you tell me what state is this in?Customer: NJJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: NoJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: I do not think so
