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.

I have waited for almost an hour for a reply and have not received a reply nor phone call. Please cancel my request and not bill my credit card.

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.
