Good afternoon,

I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.

I would be happy to call you on the phone so that we can talk if you would like. Unfortunately, they have turned off the ability we have to offer the call to you. You will have to click the button on your screen that reads "Call me" and then I should be able to offer you that call.

Hello, Thank you for your prompt resonse. I didnt realize that I would have pay to have a telephone call. I would rather send messages. Thank you for your help

That is up to you. I can all but guarantee though that you will get your money's worth out of a call and much more information than I could ever possibly provide to you in written form, given the reality of time constraints. We generally speak 10 times faster than we type and while I usually spend 30 to 60 minutes on a phone call, I assure you I would never spend 5 to 10 hours typing out an answer to you.

You have yet to ask a question though. What do you need to know?


Expert:  LawTalk replied 9 months ago.


I won't be able to assist you if you are not able to provide the minimal information I sought clarification on. Please get back to me with this information at your earliest convenience.
