good morning, I am contacting you...
good morning,
I am contacting you because I am hoping that you could be of help in assisting me with finding out what my legal rights are as I believe I have a case against a Naval Doctor after a procedure that has gone wrong. I would love to further discuss m rights and options at your earliest convenience. Could we set up a date and time to discuss details? I thank you for your time and look forward to speaking with you soon.
Very Respectfully,

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!!

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.
