Etc.

This is not an answer, but an information request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. Thank you in advance.

NO children hes been married 2x before and I this was my 2nd marriage, am looking for probono lawyer not an anwering team
Lawyer: Ely, Counselor at Law replied 2 years ago

Thank you. Understand that pro bono counsel in civil cases is not a right, unlike criminal matters.

What I can do is to provide links/leads to pro bono attorneys in Illinois. I cannot promise that they would take the case, but at the very least perhaps you can find some guidance if not representation. Would this be acceptable?

Lawyer: Ely, Counselor at Law replied 2 years ago

Ah, okay. My apologies. I see now that you state that a Missouri attorney is needed even if you are in Illinois. Okay, I am amending my reply, which is:

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.

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.
