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.

I was just given a relief for cause oer, I have a week until I have to sign it and it gets submitted to HQDA. I heavily disagree with the oer which is based on an investigation which although completed, my appeal has been sitting on a three star general's desk for over a month. My punishment for the art 15 is reduced pay (suspended) for two months, and a letter of concern/letter of reprimand filed permanently (not locally). The one-star general did not yet decide which letter he would write, but I think this is irrelevant as either filed permanently would effectively end my career.… read more
