M. eye clinic this spring and admitted to hospital with horrific ulcers on both eyes. Drs.discoverd she had herpes virus and mersa in both eyes. She was left with very limited eye sight. She now is in a nursing home in Albuquerque. Please let us know if you can help

Lawyer's Assistant: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

This has nothing to do with real estate???

Nothing has been done. We were told she needs an attorney in Colorado.
