Michael J, Esq. :

Okay. What is your question in relation to that? It sounds like DUI 1st offense.

Michael J, Esq. :

What do you mean sent you answer to the wrong email address?

when i first put down my dollar deposit it said it sent the answer to my email address and if i was pleased id pay the rest but i accidentally had it sent to an email address that doesnt exist.or is this the answer and then i rate you?If it is what was sent to that non-existent address. guess im a little confused because it said Id be getting a response from a female attorney. sorry if im im confusing you now.
