Thank you for giving me the opportunity to assist you. I encourage you to ask me for clarification, if you are not clear with my Answer.

 

Contact the Office of your Jury Commissioner and ask for assistance. If your jury duty day was rescheduled twice, the Office should be able to give you a note indicating that this actually happened. Your employer wants to make sure that you actually missed work for jury duty and that you didn't just decide to take those two days without calling in. So, go back to the place that sent you the Jury notice and ask to speak with a Supervisor.

i contact the manger at the court house she was very rude to me she would not help me i tryed to get help from them someone told me to write a complaint about that but i dont know where else to go.

Lawyer: Phillips Esq., Attorney-at-Law replied 8 years ago

 

 

On the Jury Notice that you received, there is an address and/or a phone number there. Contact someone at that address or phone number. The Courthouse is not right place to call. Look at your notice again and see the information there. If you cannot find it, give me the name of your State and I would try to find the information for you.

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.
