Lawyer: Barrister, Attorney replied 11 months ago

Ok, what do the papers say? Is it a summons to go to court or is it a notice that a judgment has already been entered against you?

.

Did you get notice previously that they were filing suit against you?

.

Do you have any assets.... equity in a home, non retirement savings, other real estate, etc.?

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!!

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.
