After 2.5 months the body shop never completed the work on my car. I had it towed back home to pay someone else to finish it. Do I still need to pay?

More details to this question:
Not only did they not finish the car but they tried to charge me MORE money than they quoted originally without telling me. I put a stop payment on my check. My car has new scratches, missing paint, interior has overspray. I took pictures of all of it. Do I need to pay them? Should I wait to see if they take me to court? It is unfair I have to take my car somewhere else and pay TWICE for something.

i would work out a compromise with the body shop to avoid legal costs.

Consumer Law
Most--but not all--businesses act ethically and honestly. If a company fails to honor a product's warranty, or is violating the Fair Credit Reporting Act and Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or refuses to replace a defective product under state lemon laws, you may need a strong advocate on your side. An attorney whose practice focuses on consumer law can work tirelessly to see that you are treated fairly and afforded all of the consumer rights and protections afforded to you under state and federal laws.
