You don't need an attorney for this type of matter, although if you do feel more comfortable having an attorney represent you, this is a relatively straight forward matter and they should not charge you very much for this (it is not a complex litigation or contractual matter, and is only a summary proceeding, usually only one hearing is required, sometimes two). You can find local attorneys using the State and local Bar Association directories, or private directories such as www.AVVO.com; www.FindLaw.com; or www.Martindale.com (I personally find www.AVVO.com to be the most user friendly).

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.

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.
