Customer Question
Good morning. I have...

Good morning. I have a cousin incarcerated in Arizona that has a medical issue that isn't being addressed. where do I start? He just wants them to take action quickly, he doesn't want to go thru litigation, no damages have been done yet....

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

Only within the institution. The corrections officers (correctly) explain that his medical issue has to be reviewed by the board before any tests are conducted. (he has a lump on his testicle that is known by all, but no hurry to address). so how does he light a fire under them? Is it appropriate to even consider representation yet?

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

I don't think so

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.
