Good morning. Did they provide you with an estimate? Do the charges and the breakdown of the bill seem reasonable for the work provided?

This reply does not relate to my inquiry .. it is not about charges or estimates... it is the wording on the invoice it self... "deformation of character " ...........

Lawyer: LegalKnowledge, Attorney replied 3 years ago
Thank you for the reply. I was not aware you were considering a claim of that nature. Below are the elements which would need to be shown to have a valid claim and the writing on the invoice would not likely support it. For something like this, you may be able to use it to your advantage to get the bill reduced if this could turn into a public relations issues, with the repair shop taking advantage and over charging customer, simply because they do not like something about them. If your got out that if someone would be up charged simply for not wanting to spend a lot to repair their car ( and who does), it could hurt their business. Defendant made, said or wrote a false statement of fact;Statement was communicated to a third party;Statement caused material harm to the plaintiff;At the time the statement was made, the defendant knew that the statement was false or acted in reckless disregard for the truth (“public figure” plaintiffs), or was negligent in determining the truth (“private figure” plaintiffs).

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.
