Rutherford, NJ asked in Contracts and Business Law for New Jersey

Q: Where do I start?

I got married back in November, we hired this company to do our video, photography and flowers. The videographer showed up a hour late causing our wedding to pushed back a hour. The videographer told the company he was in a car accident, but it turns out he never was. He was fired. 8 months has gone by now and contractually our video was supposed to be ready between 4 to 6...that turned into 6 to 8 when inquired, now we're are past 8 months. I inquired today what is going on and I was told the videographer is not giving up the video. We paid in full. Are we just supposed to lurk in the shadows and cross our fingers? What type of lawyer do I need? Is this grounds for a breech of contract. Please help.

A: This is definitely a breach of contract case. You may even be entitled to triple damages if your lawyer can prove consumer fraud which may allow you to get back the payment you will need to make to hire a good lawyer. Setup an in office consultation with a good lawyer of your choice.
