Call him and ask for a partial refund. If you don't ask for it, you won't get it.
Forget small claims court. The Supreme Court has held that advertising claims don't have to be strictly true.
Don't take the advice to stop payment on the check or anything. The electrician can put a mechanic's lien on your house that will prevent you from refinancing or selling it if you do so. It's a lot easier for him to put the lien on than it is for you to get it cleared.

How 'bout calling the IBEW and complaining to them? Say you were charged $700 for one hour of labor and $20 worth of materials (and by whom), and you're gonna talk to the local TV station's investigative reporter about it. Peer pressure might can work for you here. I don't think any tradesmen want their fixed rate price book exposed to public scrutiny.

Possibly. Check with your local governmental consumer affairs department.

Again...possibly. It really depends on the law of your state...and the intricate details of your case...which aren't readily explained by you. Federal law could also come into play.
Have a nice week...
