Hi,

I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear about your situation.

What type of information are you looking for? Did your son already plead guilty?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Lawyer advised him to. If he did not lawyer said he could get 10years. What a chose. Sentencing is Feb 19. Very unfair how the system works.
Lawyer: Lucy, Esq., Attorney replied 2 years ago

That is unfair.

What type of help are you looking for from a lawyer today?

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.
