Our builder just had a letter sent from a Lawyer to collect 4,000. on a bill that was over 10,000, and we have paid 6,000 over the last 13 years. He came to us after we signed at the bank for our new house telling us he had made a mistake on our bill and we had to pay this out of our pocket.

Wisconsin

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

No

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

He gave us 10 days

We feel that the builder has taken advantage of us and we do not owe him any more money? This lawyer said he was going to initiate legal proceeding against us . Does he have any rights to do this after all this time?
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
No just want to know if this is really possible?

Is there any answer ?
Reject it as untimely, waived, time barred and not owing.A lawyer letter from a local lawyer can be effective in several ways. It can avoid costly litigation and help bring about a settlement. It also helps organize the claim and if it goes to court shows the judge you tried in good faith to resolve it!martindale.com and findlaw.com are both excellent lookup directories. Both highly rated. Both used by lawyers. Easy to search and find local options.Please let me know if the reply is acceptable by responding “yes” or “acceptable”

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.
