Customer Question
I have a friend...

I have a friend who lost her first child in a custody battle and has no funds to go back to court, she never gets to see her child or even talk to her anymore. She needs legal help

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

Nebraska

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

She has not since the case as she has no money, i was under the impression she might be able to get some free advice

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

I think I will have her come in here , since she know s more about it, Im just trying to help her find help as this is just killing her

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.
