How much is the fee

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

Nc

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

I filed a civil suit

Lawyer's Assistant: Has a complaint been filed and served? What are the claims in the case?

Yes. I am claiming to receive monies for repairs done at the premises, water bill due to faulty pipes and last month rent. Also, I was locked out before I could serve the landlord or get my belongings.

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

A attorney called and left a message only voicemail today asking me to get in touch with him as a representative for the landlord so that we can settle this matter before court. Aug. 15th.

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.
