Hi,

I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.

Were you in Florida at the time you took out the loan? Does the loan agreement say they can sue you there?

What type of loan is this?

Can you tell me anything else about the case?

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.
