Can I use my association property management company for negligent bookkeeping

Lawyer's Assistant: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Illinois

Lawyer's Assistant: Has any paperwork been filed?

Yes. The association attorney has accused me of owing a certain amount of money. I have cancelled checks to prove the amount is erroneous

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

This is the second time we have been to court. I paid off the amount agreed upon by the court. Now they say I owe more fees but they will not give me a copy of the ledger

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.

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.
