Federal, State and Local laws have been enacted to help protect home owners from poor and shoddy work provided to by contractors.  In many locations contractors have to be licensed by the state and insured before they can perform work.  Many townships require a contractor to have filed paperwork before working in that area.  If you have been the victim of poor workmanship in your home or property, or have paid a contractor only to find later that the work was poorly done or the materials were substandard you may need an attorney.  Call The Law Offices of Lee M.
