Customer Question
I am a defendant in...
I am a defendant in a civil action in the Circuit Court of Baltimore City. Since I cannot find legal representation due to my age (61) and my lack of money, having been out of work for over eight months.
How can I get a response out ASAP?
My time is almost over and I need a form letter or something that I can use to defend myself against these false and libelous clams.
I just want to die with a black mark against my name that is not true.

No!!!
I was served 5/13 so I would presume that an answer needs to be filed by Monday 5/14/10.
I can take it to the Post Office and make sure that it is delivered Certified by then.
I just need help writing the answer!

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.
