Customer Question
Well not sure. I...

Well not sure. I had a contractor pour a concrete slab. Then when I had a building inspector come check to see what I need to do before building. Found out that the contractor didn't treat for termites or put footers in. I emailed contractor no luck in resolving. Filed a complaint with the BBB and no resolve there either. the contractor didn't even answer the complaint so the BBB closed out the complaint. Everything was done orally. What can I do?

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

Hahira, GA

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

I filed with the Better Business Bureau and I am going to file with the Secretary of State but they said I should also seek legal advice.

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

Only that this was all orally done and that the contractor has been in business for over 30 years and we assumed he knew the codes for pouring a cement pad for a shed.

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.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
