Customer Question
A CAR DEALERSHIP EMPLOYEE...

A CAR DEALERSHIP EMPLOYEE TRIED TO MAKE US BUY A CAR THAT I THOUGHT WOULD BE OK BUT WHICH MY WIFE SAID SHE COULDN'T DRIVE BECAUSE SHE WAS TOO SHORT. WE GAVE THEM ELEVEN HUNDRED IN CASH AND A CHECK FOR FIVE HUNDRED AND EIGHTY AS A DOWN PAYMENT.

Lawyer's Assistant: What state is this in? And how old is the car?

WHEN WE DISCOVERED THE PROBLEM WE CALLED THE LEGAL HELP FOR SENIORS AND ASKED IF WE SHOULD PUT A STOP ON THE $580 CHECK. THEY SAID THAT WOULD BE THE THING TO DO, SO WE DID. NOW THE CAR COMPANY HAS THEIR LAWYERS CALLING AND THREATENING US.

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

NO

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.
