I am happy to report that I was in contact with management at Aftermath and this issue has been rectified to my satisfaction.
This issue is related to Hurricane Sandy insurance claims for homes on the New Jersey shore. The NJ shore is a disaster area and many homeowners have yet to receive insurance money, as well as long delays every step of the way.
The problems originate with FEMA. I had a long talk with my adjuster and he assured me they are on my case and that all these delays are from the govt agencies.
I am just very frustrated that I have a destroyed home that is in disrepair and do not have the use of the premises. Aftermath is working on my case, and trying hard to get funds to remediate my home.

I would like to warn anyone would might be considering using this company. They do not return phone calls and they do not take your case seriously. I hired them to assist me in negotiating with my flood insurance company due to damages suffered from Hurricane Sandy. It has been nothing but a nightmare. Eight months later and I have not seen any insurance money and have had to put up over $20,000 of my own money. In the next couple of months I am looking at putting up another $75,000 of my own money to complete home repairs. Aftermath brought their attorneys Jeffrey F. Dragon as another party to this. Dragon attorneys is dishonest and unethical. This attorney handles escrow money. The insurance company has disbursed some money and Dragon attorneys are responsible for disbursing the funds. They have quickly paid Aftermath, but they are refusing to pay me. Neither Dragon nor Aftermath respond to phone calls, emails or faxes. My property is in disrepair and unusable. I estimate it will not be repaired until early next year. I have had to file formal complaints with various state agencies about both companies and the state bar. I also have filed complaints with the BBB. In addition to the $20,000 I put up already, I am looking at fronting more money, roughly $75,000 at a minimum. Both Dragon and Aftermath, are disinterested. I may be forced to take a complete personal loss on my vacation home and turn it over to the bank. Both of these companies are playing games. My home prior to the hurricane was worth about $130,000, it is a modest 2 bedroom ranch. The town revalued it to $64,000 for tax purposes, approximately a 60% reduction in tax assessment.
