we are not going to have an actual conversation about this are we? you do not practice law in NJ? I make 1000 dollars a month on a good month. I am looking for help to get out of a really crappy situation. all you are going to be able to do is recommend that i contact a lawyer here in nj, right.

what else can I answer for you?
We cannot represent customers. if you get an automatic phone call request, you can accept it and a phone based law expert will handle. if you prefer to proceed by chat with me, just reply to the chat. some customers choose both, but the choice is yours! Thanks

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.
