Hi, I have a question about something very specific that I'm not sure which type of attorney to turn to.

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

North Carolina.

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

No, I don't know if I can or should or anything to that degree.

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

It's an illegal business that my boss owns, and he didn't tell me it was illegal and now he owes me over $6000 and I'm not sure where to turn. Labor laws?

Thank you for your reply.

I have experience dealing with frauds, yes, but none of the attorneys on this site can represent you or anyone else from this site, we can only answer questions you may have.

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.
