Customer Question
I have never used a...
I have never used a lawyer before, and have just come from a a meeting with a private lawyer. I have been caught stealing and am already on suspended sentence, I believe I have a depression problem, so am seeing a phycologist and have been put on plan of 6 visits. My first is tomorrow, and my court date has been ajourned to the 30th of this month for the second time. So this Lawyer has said we should ajourn it again on the 30th until i've been to all 6 session with phycologist to get the full report written up. I have to pay him $1360 by then, plus this amount again becuaser it is being ajourned. Is this too much??

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
