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

I think I need a lawyer

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 9 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 9 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.

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.

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.

I am writing this as I can't stop crying at the moment for
Good evening. I am writing this as I can't stop crying at the moment for two days. So I am in USA for 8 years now. Came on Asylum (through my husband). Currently a green card holder. I had clean background until yesterday... I got caught shoplifting in the sum of 500$. The police officers didn't arrest me. They gave me though this Uniform Criminal Citation where I need to wait for a court date. The most emabarassing and painful thing here is that I got my interview to receive citizenship on July 11th. My attorney said that it would be a good idea to postpone the interview for it will give us time to solve this. I am very pissed off... I can't regret it more... I hired an attorney to help me out. Please, tell me, are there chances for my case to be solved in a way so I still get citizenship? I really don't know what to do. … read more
