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.

I had an emergency room visit due to an accident 4 years
I had an emergency room visit due to an accident 4 years ago. I was there approximately 30 minutes and had a blood test and a CT on my head. The doctor, a contractor was present approximately 5 minutes and indicated nothing wrong. I indicated when I went in there was no more insurance, only the 5,000 dollars from my car insurance. The bill was 7200.00. Hospital kept 5000.00 and doctor was 2200.00. 1200 of the hospital bill was doctor. The remainder of the bill has been in collection since 2013. I wrote the collectors several times and of course, bottom feeders will always be just that, they kept on. In March this year they sent me a settlement offer of 50% of the total 1223.00. The other firm which had the hospital portion did the same and was no problem. I sent them their money and they cashed the check and was all good. This current outfit is holding my check and calling for the other 50%, even after the letter they sent me. They are threatening me with taking my social security check or retirement for this. That is all I have at this time and barely get by at that. I believe they are wrong to continue this and to hold my payment check. What do you think? … read more
