Customer Question
Need a one hour...

Need a one hour consultation with a landlord tenant type lawyer

Lawyer's Assistant: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?

Virginia

Lawyer's Assistant: What are the terms of the lease? Any issues related to maintenance or upkeep?

The tenant left in November under good relationship with us. promised to pay us upon receiving tax return. they turned off phone and all communications. We waited until Jan. 20 to go by and see what they were going to do.he agreed on that day that he owed the money and would pay when tax return came

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

Now that he has decided not to pay he has made up a list of so called problems at the house. i have all the receipts and dates of every problem that he called me about and when it was fixed and how much i paid. i think he just does not want to pay

talk on phone
Lawyer: Andrew, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

Sure Just Answer is not allowing me to offer a phone call for some reason.

Lawyer: Andrew, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

hopefully you will see an offer for a phone call here shortly. Just Answer usually asks automatically if you want one.

I do not like the text stuff. The telephone seems better but they charge 59.00 with no assurance that the answer will tell me what I need to know
Lawyer: Andrew, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

I understand I think the phone service is down today. This is the second one that has not worked.

Will it resolve the problem for only 59.00 ?
Lawyer: Andrew, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

Allright I was able to offer

If you would still like to talk just accept the phone call offer.

Lawyer: Andrew, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

I proposed a phone call. In order for us to talk you have to accept. We will then be connected.

Three H.Houston, TX

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.
