ATLANTIC COUNTY - CONSUMER/CONTRACTOR

Negotiation/representation in lawsuit regarding contractor dispute

VL hired a contractor to demolish and rebuild her Sandy-damaged home. After the contractor demolished the home, he demanded additional payment, outside the scope of their agreement, in order to proceed with the rebuild. VL has paid the contractor $60k so far, but the contractor has failed to furnish invoices that total that amount. The contractor has not been to her house since the demolition in January 2016. Meanwhile, the contractor damaged VL’s neighbor’s oil tank while attempting to remove it, causing a spill. The DEP held VL liable for cleaning up the oil, which depleted her savings. She is seeking an attorney to help her recover funds from the contractor so she can finally move forward with rebuilding.
