Customer Question
I want to know if...
I want to know if there is anything that can be done to get me money from WC for just my injuries from the accident. I was basically not represented and never cashed the check that they forced me to sign at the mediation before I could leave. Since the
lawyer did nothing for 3 years and shuffled me between himself and a female layer and no documentation was gotten by the lawyer. I told him I had 3 or for surgeons that were will to testify for me that the injuries were extensive. If nothing can be done which
I think is wrong the can the lawyer be sued for malpractice.

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.
