2 reports were filed and eventually responded to.Taxicab Co. admitted negligence.

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

Injuries were outside hospital and we're immediately addressed, but pain and discomfort still persist.At my age I need a lawyer to protect me!

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.
