We went to small claims court in June 2005 and won. (Defendant [a contractor] appealed). At this point we hired an attorney, and paid him $400.00 deposit. He filed with the prothonotary in August 2005 and I have only heard from this attorney 2 times in almost 2 years. He will not return phone calls or acknowledge e-mails.
Today I called prothonotarys office to see if anything has been done and they informed me that this will expire in August as there is a 2 year time frame.
I cannot afford to hire another attorney, let alone the money we lost on the faulty project that origionally brought this on.
What should we do?
