Customer Question
I filled out all...

I filled out all forms for section 8. I am on disability and need to move out as soon as possible. The abuse is getting worse. I don’t know how long I will be able to make it here. I’m not getting hit yet, but it will happen. His anger is getting worse by the day

Lawyer's Assistant: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

I’m in Westminster Mass

Lawyer's Assistant: Has any paperwork been filed?

All has been done

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I need to get out as soon as I can

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.

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