    The wife thing was to give an example of how the other party can manufacture any lie, and it has the same weight as your 'truth.' I'm in a battle right now with people that are grasping at straws, doing that same kind of thing (making stuff up). Thankfully, I had a feeling about these people and dcoumented EVERYTHING.

    What you see on TV is just that. TV.

    Take my advice on the attorney thing - see if he's willing to take the case on a contingency basis.

    u r absolutely, positively right! best way is everything in writing! however, if i do a job without a contract, and the guy stiffs me, i will not roll over and surrender my money. yup, he can make up lies, and then so can i . i am an honorable, respectfull person, but, when dealing with scum i tend to act like scum. yur honor, mr. x then requested that i give him *ral sex, that was not part of our agreement, and i feel at this point i needed to abort the job . ......

    I am not a lawyer, so therefore our stated position is to refrain from any other legal advice threads! ;)
