Customer Question
Hi Pearl, can you...

Hi Pearl, can you please let me know if decks are covered under PA Home Improvement Consumer Protection Act?

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you contacted the seller? What documentation do you have?

I am sorry, what does this have to do with my question?

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Is this a free service?

Lawyer's Assistant: The Consumer Protection Lawyer's require payment for their services. It's way less expensive on JustAnswer than face-to-face would cost.

What is the cost for their service?

Lawyer's Assistant: You just pay a $5 deposit now and the rest only when you get a reply from the Consumer Protection Lawyer. All of this is 100% satisfaction guaranteed, so you can get a refund if you're not happy for any reason.

What is the amount of the total payment?

Lawyer's Assistant: You just pay a $5 deposit now and the rest only when you get a reply from the Consumer Protection Lawyer. All of this is 100% satisfaction guaranteed, so you can get a refund if you're not happy for any reason.

You didn't answer my question. Are you a robot?

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.
