I need legal advice with a car transaction. I bought a car in 2014 and put $10,000 down. About 3 months later i decided to lease a 2015 car. The
dealership didnt return any of my money and i think they said it was going to be used to pay the car off at the end of the lease. Its the end of lease March 31 and they say I don’t have any money inmy account. They say the money wa used to reduce the payments but no where in the contract it says that. What should i do? I don’t have much time left

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.
