Being called once an hour by insurance company and hung up on each time, what action can I legally t
I received 3 calls last night, once an hour at 6pm, 7pm and 8pm from Cigna Specialty Pharmacy's automated system. The calls then resumed at 8am the next day. Immediately after picking up the system hangs up on me. After the first unwanted call I requested to be removed from all automated calls. After the fourth and most recent call I took a screenshot of my phone's call log and recorded (after notifying them they were being recorded) myself notifying them that any further calls would be considered harassment and their understanding. If I receive another call at 9am what are my options?

What kind of attorney do I need
We purchased a manufactured home 1 year 8 months ago. Worst experience ever!! Have had nothing but problems with the house and the company. I can't get the company to fix any of the problems, or if they say they will, they send out a guy that doesn't finish. I have had a kitchen sink that has leaked off and on from day one, they have "fixed" it 3 times!! My walls are crooked, but my house is level. And now, we have electrical outlets that have stopped working. This is just a few issues. We had to contact the state in the beginning just to get the house set up. The company won't fix the problems, the mortgage company can't "put pressure on them because technically they do communicate with us" and I am not being helped. Should I find an attorney and if so what kind?
