This is a general question but I can apply it to several specific situation. If a person has someone perform a service and they don't do it right it only makes sense that you have a right not to pay for that persons services. But how do you go about contesting legally in court or whatever.

Sorta. The first right (and obligation) is asking the provider to remedy the situation.

So you start by asking them nicely to fix "it" when you first discover the problem.
Then you follow that up with a LETTER defining your position...
and again asking them to remedy to your satisfaction with a time expectation.

Contesting what? That they haven't received your check?

Pay by credit card and if a problem happens first try and work it out and if not, contest the charge. Let the card work for you.

if a small amount, I don't. Not worth the aggravation. If larger, I monitor and try to nip problems at the bud.

Winner, winner, chicken dinner.

I just went through hell with a car repair. Outrageous repair estimate over $9,000 I made them stop and put it back in same condition it arrived took it to another repair shop where it was fixed for $300. I am serious.

Owner agreed to credit back charges but did not do it until I opened a dispute with my card company. If I'd paid by check I'd never have gotten anything back without court. Not thrilled with Mastercard who did a lousy job handling the dispute (kept asking for the same documentation that I sent them 2 times), really prefer using Amex but not all places take Amex.

Dispute the charges, the credit card company will yank that money right back

They don’t play around with fraud.

When disputing credit card charges put some thought into whether you can easily manage without the service provider.

I read an article about a guy who disputed a charge from Google and they immediately closed his account. Thousands of photos, documents, spreadsheets, etc. stored in the cloud *poof*

If he didn't keep backups, he's an idiot. The cloud is great for sharing data between devices, like your computer, cell phone and tablet. I back up my data to flash drives with a tag that says what's on them. The most I could ever lose is about 3 days work.
