Thank you.

I am still not quite sure about the question. What are you asking exactly? I understand the situation. What do you want to know? How to find out if the letter went through, for example? Etc.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
i want to know if they ever sent the letter and i want to know what steps to take fromher
Expert:  Ely replied 1 year ago.

Thank you. I have just one last question (you have been very patient).

Did you hire the attorney for the WHOLE THING or just to send a letter? Finally, have you attempted to contact the attorney's office to find out the status?
