Customer Question
Worker at my house...

Worker at my house used my credit cards unauthorized.

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

Was charged and found guilty. Two of the companies returned the money to my account the 3rd is charging me for the purchases + intrest.

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

My issue is that the store where he purchased is responsible and their bank should reinstate the money to my account. He did have that card ( as with the others) and purchased the part I ordered (I'm handicapped} $34.00. He then went to a different Lowes store ad spent about $1300.00 for himself.

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