I did not know i had to pay more than 5 dollars. I would like that to be refunded, and i will seek help somewhere else.
Employment Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 6 months ago

I understand. It's a great value as there are few law offices open today and many charge up to $300 for a simple consultation. If you're interested, we can continue.
