Customer Question
For Lawyers...

For Lawyers who don't get pay unless u get a settlement, if they don't finish the investigation and u know they didn't look into other matters what should do?

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are they in? It matters because laws vary by location.

Michigan

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have they taken so far?

What looking into the MDR on a disc, but I witnessed something myself which I don't have any answers.

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

Why didn't the hospital restrain my brother when he was a mental patient, and security was call to floor.

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.
