COLLECT FROM A LICENSED CONTRACTOR

TO COLLECT FROM A CONTRACTOR

I know a great contractor named Andy Reed. I know firsthand that he and his company, ATR Solutions, http://atrsolutionsinc.com do a great job for their clients. If you need a contractor, I would highly recommend him. However, that's not always the case with contractors. Check out Adam Carolla's show http://www.spike.com/shows/catch-a-contractor to see some examples. When things go bad and you obtain a judgment against a licensed contractor, the law provides some leverage. A judgment against a contractor which is construction-related (the law gives a very broad definition of construction related) that is not paid within 90 days can result in the contractor's license being suspended pursuant to Business and Professions Code §7071.17. Suspension of a contractor means that the contractor can't work legally.

IT'S GROUNDHOG DAY

IT'S GROUNDHOG DAY

Greetings and Happy 2015. One of the interesting things about my practice is that I get to deal with people from all walks of life. I've dealt with sophisticated financiers, doctors, lawyers, dentists, engineers, restaurant owners, MTV Real World Contestants, and professional athletes, to name a few. Despite the varied background and circumstances of people I deal with, I hear a lot of the same things from them and their attorneys. When I hear one of these oft repeated statements I think of Bill Murray's classic movie. In our first regular weekly post of the year I thought that I would cover a couple "Groundhog Day" issues that come up when attempting to resolve a matter.
