    I'm looking to hire an attorney to attempt to settle, and litigate if necessary a claim I have against Cebu Air. Basically they denied us boarding for flight for which I held two paid tickets - thus subjecting us to a bunch of other costs.
    Someone had suggested Mikhail Maxino about this earlier. But after a month of trying to contact him, and then having just yesterday been stood up for a scheduled meeting, I'm looking for someone more reliable.

    What was the reason for you being booted from the flight?

    Is the loss less than $500? If yes, let it go.....life is too short.

    You could be starting a battle that they have already won. This is from their site and its just the beginning of the list of reasons they can refuse service for. You may be better off writing to their head office with a polite request. Philippines is not really a litigating culture. You should also realize that a judge will give the benefit of the doubt, if any, to a filipino over a foreigner. If you even raised your voice at the check in counter that can be construed as unacceptable behavior as I showed in bold text.

    The gate agent said our ticket had been canceled. Nope. Paid receipt, payment credited from my current account.

    Did you buy the ticket directly from the airline or through a 3rd party (such as a travel agency)? Did you ask them why the ticket had been canceled? Did they offer you another ticket or a full refund?

    Dude, thanks for your interest. I think I've said enough about the specifics of my case. I'll just say that it's open and shut. No room for misunderstandings. It was blatant violation on their part of a contract for carriage.
    Naturally, I've tried to work it out with Cebu Air; and it has not resulted in a settlement. Once it became crystal clear that it was their fault, they quit communicating. Thus, I'm looking for legal representation.

    Very well. I'm sure you know that cases move at a snail's pace in the Philippines. Be prepared to spend upwards of 5-10 years to get your money back. I don't have any recommendations for legal representation. I wouldn't even bother with it with the amount of money you are looking to get out of them, but that's just me. Best of luck to you.
