Customer Question
I had a civil...

I had a civil case over 10 yrs. My wages were garnished and I recv'd a satisfaction on lien. Nothing until recently, went back and forth to court showing my papers and 3 judges all different responses. My banking account was garnished and made negative. Now this lawyer called and said that he would garnish my wages.

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

Florida

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you contacted the manufacturer?

The bank has no lien information, manufacturer?

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

How did this happen and go so long and why?

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.
