I hired a painting contractor to paint the interior of my home and refinish the scratches on my kitchen cabinets. He did a horrible job, I can see the old paint color in some areas of the home and the paint color doesn’t match the one I picked. I think the old paint is bleeding threw. I also have trim colors overlapping on the wall color and wall color overlapping on the trim. I have given the contractor an opportunity to come in and fix his work but I still have the same problems. His idea of refinishing my cabinets was to use a stain pen that doesn’t even match my original cabinet color. How can I proceed from here? Should I hire a lawyer? The contractor is now trying to get payment from me.

What did the contractor promise? What is on the contract? If good work was promised and this is what you got then a lawyer might be a good idea. Do not pay until you see a lawyer.
