I can't speak for *** **** personally, but the odds are seriously against you in getting any direct help from him.
However, all is not lost. If you only find 1 contractor that only works with insurance companies, try the other way around. Contact your insurance company and ask THEM for references. You can bet that they have seen MORE wet basement claims than you can imagine. And with that, comes an AWFUL lot of experience with which ones are 'good' and which ones are 'bad'.
Trust them on this. My best to ya and hope this helps.
