Hello. My name is ***** ***** I am an attorney. I would be happy to take a look at the video and give you my thoughts. I likely would not get to it until tomorrow morning or late afternoon and given it is a little more than responding to a question, I am going to send you an offer for premium service with a proposal for what I would charge to do this. If it is agreeable to you, just accept the proposal and I will provide my thoughts after watching the video tomorrow.

Sorry - I think you may have to accept my entry above as an answer for me to offer a premium service.

I can pay extra. What are your fees.I also need your opinion if I should submit the video to the insurance company. I'm scared that I'm liable for the accident, so I want a lawyer to review it first.
Lawyer: Attorney Wendy, Lawyer replied 4 months ago

I would do this service for $35; I just need to figure out how to get Just Answer to allow me to offer you that upgraded service. I think if you click to accept my prior answer it will open up that option for me.

I also do want to note that you do not have to turn over the video to the insurance company, but if any lawsuit were to be filed as a result of the accident, the video would ultimately have to be disclosed. Just wanted to give you that heads up as well.

So sorry for the multiple message. I am getting ready to sign off for the night. I checked and to offer premium service, I will just need you to accept our correspondence as an answer and then I will offer the additional service. Also, the $35 (for clarification) will be on top of the basic question cost - just didn't want that to be a surprise for you.

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.
