Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
You would have to file a claim through the state attorney general in the state where the alleged victim is residing. The MSA has been entered with the tobacco companies and the various state attorney generals and if the attorney general of your state participated you would file a claim through them.

should I hire you to do this or can I file paper work myself? If a hire is better, est cost? I am done.Thank you,

Thank you for your reply.

State law forbids any attorney on this site from engaging in representation of any site customer. So we cannot represent you. You would do best using a local tobacco liability attorney to make sure you submit all of the proper medical documentation.

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.
