HelloCustomer

I aced business law a few years ago; you can wait for an attorney type, or I can tackle the questions for you. If they overwhelm me, I'll opt out and it'll be back in the JA community quickly. If the answers don't satisfy you, you still have the option of sending the question back to the JA community.
