Customer Question
I followed the protocol...

I followed the protocol in getting my civil case in court in iowa before the two years. Since it is against some public officials I asked if it could be dismissed for right now due to I was getting out of prison and feared retaliation. I wanted to proceed now and wondered if I had to refile?

Lawyer's Assistant: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in?

Iowa

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

Yes I filed the lawsuit in 2014

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.
