I sent a phone call proposal if you'd like. Or did you wish to continue via the thread?

What is general information. Does this mean you will say that he has every right to do what he has done and I could lose? I would like something so I can speak with some knowledge to rebuttal his
Expert:  Ely replied 1 year ago.

No. Either via this thread or via a call (currently a test feature), experts can only provide general information, and not legal advice. This mans that I cannot tell you WHAT to do, or get too nuanced in state law. I can however explain and apply some general doctrines and how they may play out in such a scenario. We can have a general discussion about said situation.

I apologize for bothering you. I misunderstood you ad and services. I do not have any additional monies without receiving my unemployment.
I am scheduled for three surgeries starting next week, my cervical neck, my lower lumbar, and a torn miniscus in my right knee and I can not do this without unemployment and then I can continue my job search.
Thank you for your time and I will not bother you again.
My case is an 88 year old millionaire who has challenged unemployment for everyone that has worked for him so he can continue to count his monies. This is not bitterness this is the truth. I wish I had known about before I accepted the job so I would have said no.
Expert:  Ely replied 1 year ago.

There is no need to apologize. We can simply talk online here if you'd like. Let me know.
