Customer Question
My roommate was staying...

My roommate was staying at his boyfriend on weekends. They both knew where my roommate was staying was bedbug infested. My roommate would pack suit case with dirty laundry bring here bringing bedbugs. Neither one informed me. They tried to hide from me ,dragged all furniture out of room spreading all over house. Had 4 treatments from Terminix. The house is still infested. I'm holding them responsible. I am more than likely going to have to get rid of my furniture. And the stress from this is awful I get bit constantly. They need to be stopped before they ruin anther persons lifetime

Lawyer's Assistant: What state is your roommate in? It matters because laws vary by location.

Nevada

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps has your roommate taken so far?

He paid for extermination I had to have him move out because he kept going back to his friends house. The friends house has never been treated by a professional.

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

No that's a brief description.

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.

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.
