Customer Question
I recieved a settlement...

I recieved a settlement from a case in the amount of 35,000 which was after my lawyer took out their fees and ect. I took it to their bank wells fargo to cash it and opened up a account at the same time and was told they would have to put a hold on it until the following tuesday and gave me 2,000 before i left that day. It has been now 3 weeks and everytime i contact them they say they have not verified it with the company and will not release any more of the money. I have tried to get in touch and went to the lawfirm that represented me and I can never get ahold of the person. I am at a loss as to what to to now

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.

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.
