Lawyer's Assistant: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

The state of ohio and defiance is the county we live in

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

What do you mean. I have asked the ss. office to review bridgetts case and all they can say, you owe 4,000 dollars

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

I can tell them anything I should , what else should I say

Why are they saying you owe $4000 back if they approved her claim?

we made to much money for the month

Thank you for your reply.

So, this is on SSI claim, not just the SS Disability, since her disability benefits are based on her disability and not income?

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.
