Customer Question

Hello - My closest friend has been detained since 18 November at immigration attempting to leave Benin and return home to Belgium where he is a citizen. He has no access to his medication and suffers from a severe spinal injury. Because I am not a Belgian citizen, I can't get a response from the Belgian embassy in the US. Who shall I contact?
JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: this has nothing to do with real estate...
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: To whom? I can't get anyone to respond to my messages and no live person answers the phone. They will not release Steve's phone to him.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: This is exceptionally time sensitive due to his health.
