Can you clarify what you want advice about as although your friend's circumstances sound difficult, it is not clear exactly what you want assistance with?

Also, has she done something illegal to turn herself in, or is she just considering turning herself bankrupt?

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.
