Just found out the contractor I've used for two separate large home projects pled guilty to theft by swindle before I originally hired him. He was on probation so maybe he was on best behavior!

The theft occurred before you hired him and was recently caught? Or He stole and plead guilty all before you hired him?

He pled guilty right around the time I hired him the first time. Mortgage fraud about 2yrs earlier under a different one of his companies. I had poked around a bit but at the time put too much value in their A+ BBB rating and online reviews. He actually seems to have done a good job, we've had a couple people look at it including an inspector from our mortgage company with no concerns.

He was terrible at bookkeeping, actually the reason I looked him up again today to see if they were still in business. I'm pretty sure he forgot to send me a small final bill but it's been 3 years since they completed the work.

Wonder if he just didn’t report income or what the swindling was. If you were happy with his service looks like you did well.

My glowing review, complete with the “it’s not a matter of ‘if’ you’ll make partner but ‘when’” line, resulted in a $4,000 salary increase. For the third year in a row.

I billed 200 more hours than last year and earned another certification. Now at $76k in a low to mid COL area. Top 25 firm.

Is it time to jump ship?
