Customer Question
I have a friend...

I have a friend with diabetes who has been put in Waterfront Health Center supposedly to get rehab but now has been there for well over 6 months, is being denied privileges and can only go out with his sister and mother that put him there

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

I am a friend in Kentucky. He is from here but currently in Buffalo, NY.

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

Not that I am aware3 of or that he is aware of

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

What are his legal options and his rights?

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.
