Customer Question
My husband got into...

My husband got into a car accident. We of course contacted the insurance company and they assessed the damage and told us to pick a shop to get the work done. My husband found a shop and we put it in there. The guy looked at the damage to the car and told us that the car would be ready the next week. This was at the end of June. We just got our car back Friday. Before we took the car, I looked at it and saw that the car still had scratches and that the car had not been painted. The finish was mess and i told the guy this. He said for us to bring the care back this Tuesday which is tomorrow to fix it. We were in the car when we picked it Friday for about forty five minutes and we broke down on a busy intersection . The car is still in the same area we broke down at. I called today to express my concerns to the guy who did the work. He was rude and told me he was going to call his lawyer and he was doing nothing to help us.

Lawyer's Assistant: How old is the vehicle? When was it purchased?

Brand new

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in?

Maryland

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

Just how long he had the care which I think I mentioned early. I really just want to know if we have a case against this guy and how to begin if we do.

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.
