Customer Question
I am not able...

I am not able to pay (except small amounts) on 2 large credit card bills. Accounts are over 30 years old. I am 81 and just retired this past June of 2017. Can I get guidance or a referral to an attorney? Amex was passed on to Swicker and Associates P. C.

Lawyer's Assistant: What state is this in? And when did the issue begin?

Texas-Houston. Started this year when I stopped working. Thank you for your quick response.

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

Amex said they were in early stages of filing lawsuit in Harris County.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Not at this time.

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.
