“Mary” came to Legal Aid to seek assistance with a water damage problem to her home and property which was a result of construction done by the City. Mary had photos of an extensive amount of water damage along with mold & mildew. We referred the case to attorney Heidi Hoffecker who along with a Legal Aid staff attorney did research to determine if she could file. The city denied responsibility and a lawsuit was filed. After several years of discovery and negotiations, a settlement was finally reached. The city agreed to make repairs to the property and to bear the expenses associated with such repairs – packing, moving, and storing the client’s personal property while the house is vacated, hotel accommodations; moving back in and unpacking of their property.
