Ok, let me see...

Ok, let me see if I can shorten this. My husband and I own a restaurant in a small town in Colorado. We hired a girl who became quite a problem for us. The first incident was she and her husband started a food truck type business and asked us to let them us our commercial kitchen for licensing. We said “no” we were comfortable with that. Next incident..she wears a gun on her hip, I was called for help by my daughter who was working as it had gotten busy and when I arrived I walked in and she had been a customer at the time, had gotten up to assist my daughter and was delivering plates with a gun on her hip.

Lawyer's Assistant: What state is this in? And how old is the truck?

Oops wasn’t done

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

Let me continue it’s gets crazy

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

Yes give me a sec to enter more

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.
