Well it finally happened, I have been attempting to collect from a Prop. Mgmt Firm for some work we did. Long story even longer, they shorted my invoices for a variety of reasons. One of them they said it shouldn't have taken that long to fix, one they said they only authorized half the labor that I billed for, and the other they said my rate was too high. To keep things short...I am honest. if it took 6 hours, there must have been a reason, all of these things have a reason.....anyway My lawyer has been corresponding with them and the usual "he said, she said" stuff goes on but now.....We have a pre-trial conference set up for Dec. 15th. Here's the thing, the lawyer is of course into me for 500-750 already to chase approx. 1500 dollars worth of debt. I can't turn back. Now I am starting to second guess myself of course. Is that normal? Do you think they will chicken out or do they expect me to do the same? I can't stand the thought of going to court with these schmucks and sitting around a table with them. Oh well, it's my money dammit and I want it.
