We need to get advice on a case that we have been summons as witnesses for in regards ***** ***** commercial lease.

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

Pennsylvania

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

The plaintiff gave us a subpoena today for a hearing on March 19. Sorry, defendant. The plaintiff is our landlord.

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

The landlord sued the defendant for a breach of lease. The defendants subpoenaed us as witnesses. We have a 5 yr. lease with the plantiff and don't won't to do anything to harm that relationship since we have 5 years with him.

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.
