Customer Question
I am a veteran...

I am a veteran from the 1950's.

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

I have no medical problems that are service related. I have never served in a war zone. Am I eligible?

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

None other than attempt to find out if I am eligible without any results.

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.
