Thank you for your new question. I look forward to working with you again.
We are not allowed by the state bars and site rules to take clients from this site, which I am sure you understand (with rules about solicitations etc that give us all headaches). We are allowed to continue providing this service because we stick to providing information so as to not run afoul of any bar association rules.
Also, please understand the experts are not employees of this site so we get no credit unless customers leave positive feedback and it seems you have opened a new account here and have another question under the other account, so do not forget to leave positive feedback there.
When you get the release you can upload it here, using "reply" and I do not mind reviewing it for you.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

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.

TonyApopka, FL

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
