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.

She stated that she did not want that kind of personal information about me but I told her I felt it was important for her to know. 3 weeks later she stated that she just didn't;t think I was a good fit for the role and would give me a week before she made up her mind. I asked for actionable feedback to help improve my perceived performance issue and she would not give me any. After 4 days, I had 3 massive panic attacks while on a work trip outside of the country and let her know that I was suffering from anxiety and needed to talk. She didn't have time to talk.
