FranL :

Hello,

Sorry, but the terms of service here at JustAnswer prevents an Expert from actually representing a customer on a pending case. All communication must be via this website, and the most we can do is point out where else you may find a lawyer. As you've gone that route, as well as referral agencies, it's likely I'm not going to tell you anything that you don't already know. However, as you're already familiar with the facts of your case and say you know basically what it is that you have to do, you can swing by the Civil Division of the Bronx Legal Aid Society and get some do-it-yourself assistance if all else fails. There is usually an intake attorney assigned to advise people who need help on a case.

Otherwise, if you haven't tried it yet and you are still thinking about retaining an attorney, there is the New York State Bar Association's Lawyer Referral Service. The first consultation is for a half hour and is $35 dollars. You don't have to hire the lawyer after the session is over, but you might again be able to get some advice that would let you proceed on your own without getting hurt.

If I've helped, please click the green Accept button so I can get credit for my work.

Live Chat will close but you can continue to post follow-ups on this thread if you need clarification.


 

Customer:

I am already aware of the bar association as I have been dealing with them. Can you personally refer any lawyers?

FranL :

No, sorry. We are not able to do that either.


 

FranL :

Again, it happens to be against the site's terms of services.

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

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
