Hello: My name is ***** ***** I am an attorney.

You would sue both because each could be responsible and instead of one telling you that they are not responsible, they can fight it out as defendants.

We can discuss more if you want to do so. Just let me know your followup questions if you have any.

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.
