Second opinion] We accepted a quote from a concreter his stipulation was 50% deposit on beginning the job, he began the job on a Thursday and we paid him $900as requested. Weather did not allow him to return on the Friday so he said he would see us on the following Monday. That was 2 1/2 weeks ago and he has not answered our constant phone calls, texts or emails as to when he would return. I then read his reviews on his website and this has happened to several people the same. We had work done by him a couple of years ago and was very happy with the job. Can you help me as to what I can do now.

Lawyer's Assistant: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Victoria

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

No not yet, in my last email I said I would give hime till yesterday before I sought advice

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

No I don't think so

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
