Customer Question
I think I chatted...

I think I chatted to you earlier about a facebook question but was linked to a US website

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

I live in New Zealand and need a new zealand lawyer not a USA lawyer

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

No

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

Will there be any charges?

Apart from my question I was told that I nee to pay a $5 charge which would be refunded if I used my credit card. Yet I have been charged $53-00. Why is that? These terms and conditions only appear after the payment has been taken. What are the real facts about charges
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Don't worry I'll go to CAB
Solicitor: Chris The Lawyer, Lawyer replied 8 months ago

If you read the terms you will see that you can put down a deposit and then pay when a question is accepted. There is a full refund policy, if you are not happy with the answer. But it's not a free service and if you want a free service you will need to go to the CAB or community Law Centre. You can ask for a refund at any time

My Expert was fast and seemed to have the answer to my taser question at the tips of her fingers. Communication was excellent. I left feeling confident in her answer.

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.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
