Customer Question
I asked my current...

I asked my current doctor to sign a note telling my landlord that am allowed a service animal. He refused for no valid reason, yet he insists that I jump through hoops for him.

Lawyer's Assistant: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?

Vermont.

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

Now he claims that I am "rude and threatening".

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

Is this an ADA violation?

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.
