About me

CONTRACT PROBLEMS GETTING YOU DOWN?


Paul bought a super computer for his office.  The computer does not work right.  Paul wants to get his money back.  Martha hired a contractor to remodel her office.  The contractor did a poor job.  Martha doesn’t want to pay for the faulty work.  John bought an 18-wheeler but the promised grant money fell through.  He blames the seller.  None of them knows the law.  A multitude of worries plague them.  Do I have a valid claim?  Will legal time limits block my case?  Should I let it go or sue?  Would arbitration or mediation work for me?  Can I trust a lawyer?  How do I know the lawyer is any good?  Can I afford a lawyer?  Feeling cheated and angry about what happened, they think their emotions might be getting in the way of seeing the truth.  They dread the thought of a lawsuit and the costs.  A maze of uncertainty stops them from taking action.  Sound like you?  


Call me.  I can help you through the maze.
