Customer Question
How are you... My...

How are you... My is regarding a vehicle repossession process.

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

NYC, 13 year old car...I have negotiated the loan with my finance company, paid up outstanding and administration fees, they were saying they are going to reinstate the loan within 24-48 hours... but the storage company already sent my car to auction... Am I too late and being jerked around?

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you contacted the manufacturer?

Not sure what I would say if I do...

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

The repo/storage company sent the car to auction within 7 days, is that legal?

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.
