But very typical response of someone who never wants to take responsibility. Life happens and things come up but let's blame the contractor and lawyer for not being mind readers. [emoji849]

False. I take responsibility whenever I am at fault. If a contractor misquotes or doesn't know what the hell he is doing or talking about because a) he doesn't have the experience b) he is desperate for a job, and enters into a _BINDING_ contract, he is _BOUND_ to finish the job. If he doesn't, then the law is very simple, you hire another contractor to finish the work and you sue the old contractor for the difference. If the contractor sets realistic expectations and you both agree in the contract that the quoted price may fluctuate depending on what's inside the wall, then that is different.

You see the difference between a Family Law Lawyer and a contractor is that the lawyer doesn't quote the cost of the litigation in the agreement. I already posted that a lawyer and contractor don't work the same. Did you read that post? Doesn't sound like you did. However, if a lawyer says they will get the job done with $9000 (Setting false expectations) yes of course I'm going to get pissed off at the lawyer. That is what the lawyer knowing how unreasonable the other parent was/is. If you're going to throw numbers out, then why won't you just say you could expect anywhere from $5000 to over $60,000 to accomplish this. Lawyers should be honest up front setting realistic expectations. Anyone who you hire to do anything for you should. They're the experts, not us.

“Always” and “Never” statements are frequently used by people when they are arguing in order to emphasize or illustrate the merits of their position. “Always” and “Never” statements are usually exaggerations, which serve an illustrative purpose and are understood by both parties to be hyperbole and not literal. As the self-contradicting adage says, “Always and Never statements are always false and never true.”

“Always” and “Never” statements are also very frequently used by individuals who suffer from personality disorders, because they fit neatly into the split, black and white world of their thinking. They are most often used in an accusatory, argumentative or self-pitying way.
