Any recommendations on an attorney that handles GC's that wont hold up their end of a contract?
We have a contract for our to be built for X amount of money. Long story short, a 5 month build didn't start for 5 months amd now we're 18 months in and he's been absent since Aug. He says they were waiting on siding (covid). Feb come around and the siding guy calls me wanting money, money we paid in March of last year. So again, long story short. We have no siding, no rock , a few interior things and touch up. We also have been informed that our windows are junk and need to be replaced. The windows we're replacing them with are actually what he has in our contract, not the junk he put in. So it looks like there's about $10k left and $80 k to finish.
After talking to him, he acts like it on me and "he'll help any way he can with labor" but acts like he doesn't have a contract.
So any past experience or references would be awesome

A few years ago we had something similar happen. We had very good results with these guys. They love going to trial too if it goes that far they'll get you a good jury (as much as possible) and educate them before asking for the world, fenced, and with guard towers.

You probably better hurry because I am sure there is a line to sue this company. So much of this happened during the last 2 years, it would boggle the mind. The corruption is rising to the top.

So many bids, contracts and jobs got caught in lumber shortage and skyrocketing costs.

Lawyer may be your only recourse to recover some monies. Don't expect the job to get done. A new contract will most likely double in price.

We were looking into a metal shop. Got the bid on Saturday. Bid was marked "Prices good until Monday 5 pm"

We used Todd Maxwell in Tulsa, although all we had him do was write a letter (small claims deal). He did not charge for an initial consultation. My niece (who is also a lawyer) knew him, so that's how we ended up there.
