Hello! I am a licensed attorney, admitted to practice in state and federal court. I have a nearly 100% satisfaction rating (click here for more info) so all that means is that you can count on me to help today.

Please keep in mind that our conversation does not include an attorney-client relationship and this is for general information purposes only. What specific questions did you have? I have an idea about your situation, but I don’t want to make any assumptions.

Can I get your full name?
Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 7 months ago

Hi, I'm sorry, it's a bit unconventional so before we continue, could you help me understand what I can help you with?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I need to know the full name before we continue. The website stated that you are all licensed professionals. You should be able to give me your full name.
Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 7 months ago

I can understand your concern. This is a highly unusual way to connect with an attorney, particularly if you are from the north east where things tend to be very traditional; however, because I am fiercely protective of my reputation and because I do not want to have to try to explain myself to my state bar court a year from now why I gave you information you did not like, take an action I recommended that turned out not to work, or are otherwise were unsatisfied. I'm sure you mean the best and you're only looking for a way to be helped, but this isn't necessarily a forum for an interview regarding my credentials. With that said, I can opt out of this discussion and let another expert who may be willing to share their personal information with you.

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.
