I'm sorry for your ordeal. A Georgia attorney would be in the best position to advise, but your post remains open for two weeks. The things that you describe, in terms of construction noise or clocks, are really more in the territory of a landlord-tenant attorney than a personal injury...Read more »
What kind of lawyer? A criminal lawyer would be the best bet.
