My question involves court procedures for the state of: Louisiana
I hired a contractor to do some work on my home. His workers ended up damaging my home. His insurance denied the claim. I wanted to avoid going through the legal process of collecting a sum of money. So I convinced him to refund me the deposit and make three additional payments of cash to settle the damages. He agreed. What’s the best route to go about drawing up the settlement? Any links you can recommend? Should I just type specific terms and have us go to notary to sign? Will this hold up in court if it ever gets for that point? Would an attorney be best?
