I have a truly big and costly problem with an incompetent contractor and an ineffectual engineer on my major home renovation / upgrade. Papers will need to be filled with Supreme Court and the process will then either go to Supreme Court or maybe to some sort of binding arbitration.
I have restricted funds and wish to do the leg work myself if it makes sense to do so. It’s also an option to find a good solicitor who would take it on an a contingency basis. Another is to find someone familiar with the legal process to assist with assembling, proofing and filling the requisite paper work. I welcome communication from people competent in the apropos areas or perhaps good referrals.
The law firm I used to move these issues forward has been costly and inadequate in part due to their recommendation that a non-binding mediation would work (I warned them the other parties were dishonorable), in part due to a rather slapdash mediation, and in part because the mediation was (predictably) breached by the other parties due to lack of integrity and honesty.
ll you guys have been great and it’s been a real pleasure to be part of the community so I hope I can get a leg up here. Help!
