Response 1: No.

If not who says what methods will be used to reSolve this?

I’m looking for information for contra Costa county. There appears to be a number of options available to resolve the disputes I have with my insurance agency and some must be requested 15 days prior to the hearing set in June and I’m just wondering who chooses these various options and if I want to take a deposition of the agent that handled my claim how I can go about doing that if I have fee waiver?

Thank you for the information. However, I am unable to further assist. So, I will opt out to give another Attorney the opportunity to further assist you.

Goodluck with your case.
