Customer Question
I need legal advice...

I need legal advice regarding a recent situation with my ex boyfriend.

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

Illinois

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?

None. I can't afford an attorney. I just need a perspective and some advice.

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

It is a civil issue involving harassment, potential defamation, a rape claim, cheating, as well as evidence of verbal and emotional abuse

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.
