Good morning. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.

What is the basis of his complaint? How do you enforce the agreement? Is it in writing?

Expert:  Loren replied 5 months ago.

I attempted to accept your phone call request and received the following message:
"Payment for this service failed, please do not fulfill yet. We will attempt to reach this customer to fix the situation."

If you can resolve the problem (it is usually a matter of confirming with your bank or credit card that the charge is authorized) I look forward to speaking with you.

Otherwise, I am happy to continue online with you.
