When you ask for help, do you mean legal representation or do you mean answers to your questions?

I think I need a lawyer
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
The amount of my situation is a thousand dollars, how many charges are going to be on my credit card? Wanted to know if this is something that you could or can handle, not interested in investing $64.00 to get an answer if NO
Lawyer: Expert James, Lawyer replied 7 months ago

Unfortunately, although I am a lawyer, I am only available to answer legal questions. I cannot represent you in any capacity. For that, you would have to locate your own attorney in your state.

Do you have any questions that I might be able to answer for you?

I have no idea how many charges are going to appear on your statement. I do not have access to your billing or account records. I'm a user of the site like you, except that I'm on the other end, answering legal questions. For billing questions, you should contact customer service.

By the way, if you get an offer for a phone call, please note that I did not send it; it is automatically generated. You are free to accept it or not.

There was an extra $31.00 dollar charge on my account!
I didn’t get any legal advice and don’t want any from you, I want my money refunded immediately. If you look at the information that was given to me, all I asked was if this is a case that could be handled by you! I never got an answer an I am going to my credit card company and show them just what I asked and never got a straight answer, put the monies back in my account or I will post what a crooked scam you guys are running...after replacing my funds, loose my credit card information!!
Thank you
Lawyer: Expert James, Lawyer replied 6 months ago
When you decided to work with us, you agreed to the charges. Perhaps you did not read the agreement carefully. I don’t know. Either way, there is a 100% satisfaction guarantee. All you have to do is contact customer service. I have nothing to do with the charges. I just answer questions, when questions are asked.

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.
