Elderly Man’s Negotiated Settlement in Small Claims Court for Contractor Services

We recently represented an elderly, disabled man in his mid-60s in Akron County Small Claims Court. He was sued by a contractor in small claims court for $3,000 for services that the contractor performed on our client’s house. Our defense was based on the fact that the work performed was substandard and not what had originally been agreed to. Luftman, Heck & Associates was able to resolve this matter out of court, where we negotiated a settlement of less than half of what the contractor wanted our client to pay. We were also able to negotiate a payment plan that met our client’s limited budget.
