There is over 300 attorney under these terms including landlord-tenant law. Is there any short cut I can do before I start to make the calls. Thank you

Look for the attorneys with the highest ratings and start calling around. You probably do not need a big firm. So, you can rule out those.

Also, you do not need to call all 300. Call the first 5 and see who you can work with.

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.
