HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.This is going to be governed by the association bylaws. So you will need to review them to see what it says about making complaints and if they are confidential.These types of matters are not like a criminal proceeding where you have a right to "confront your accuser" And so the bylaws will dictate. If you need a copy make a request for them. Most times they are listed online. If the bylaws happen to be silent on the confidential aspect of complaints, then I suggest you can take the matter to court and have them release the information to you.

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.
