In August 2012, Beth (not her real name), a working mom of Kalamazoo, purchased a duplex from the City of Kalamazoo. At the time of the sale, however, the City failed to provide Beth with any reports or legal disclosures with regard to potential lead paint at the property. It wasn’t until several months after the closing that Beth received the required lead paint disclosure form. After having the property tested for lead, it was discovered that there were substantial lead contaminants on the property.
When brought to the attention of Paul Bohn and Jim Pelland of Fausone Bohn, LLP, the Firm acted quickly moving Beth and her 7-year-old son –who had detectable levels of lead in his blood – out of the home until they could reach an agreement with the City of Kalamazoo.
Paul and Jim’s efforts led to the negotiation of a six figure settlement that has allowed Beth to abate the lead on her property, return it to its prior condition, and has provided Beth and her son with restitution for their suffering and inconvenience.
The work the Fausone Bohn duo put into Beth’s case leading to its resolution in just six weeks stands as a testament to the attitude displayed at Fausone Bohn, LLP: providing for each client’s legal needs, one case at a time.
