We are not really allowed to advise or give legal counsel. We are only allowed to provide general information about the situation you describe.

With that in mind, how can I help you?

Lawyer: Expert James, Lawyer replied 6 months ago

Yes, we are attorneys. And we can provide information. But I am not allowed to advise you because we do not have an attorney-client relationship. So I cannot tell you exactly what to say or how to respond. But Ic an give you general information about options.

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.
