Q: How much does it cost to have a lawyer help me file a complaint for $2000 for a professional service done poorly?
A: Your question remains open for four weeks and it's a tough one for an attorney to give you a ballpark figure based on the limited facts here. A North Carolina attorney would likely want to discuss the matter with you in greater detail to determine what happened before they discuss attorney fees with you. They would likely have questions as to whether there was a written contract for the services, did the poor performance constitute a breach of that contract, what were the standards to which the services were to be completed, what remedies were outlined, etc. These are only a few fundamental questions. The bottom line is that it's likely you'll need to consult with an attorney in person or on the phone.
