Rosslyn Hummer, Attorney , on lack of available remedies for collecting on invoices and importance of record
“…there is no help for the small guy: there are many projects where budget doesn’t allow client to pay for legal help. Some of them have to pay much more in legal fees at the end which could be easily avoided with better contract at the beginning….
…. if there is a record of what happened during the project, it makes everybody’s life easier in case of any dispute….
…. we had potential clients approach us for help with their client that owes them $20,000. Between our fees, court fees, and possibility of wining the case and still not being able to collect the payment, it didn’t made sense to pursue legal action.”
