You can send a letter voiding the agreement. If company refuses, you may file a lawsuit in state court, however since company is in breach it should agree and avoid incurring risk, bad press and legal fees defending such a claim, a point which may come across on a lawyer letterhead to the company.

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.

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.
