Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
I am afraid that we are forbidden by state law from representing anyone from this site. We are restricted to only providing information to customers about their situations so they can either handle them on their own or are better educated when they get their local attorney.
If you would like information, we would be more than happy to provide it to you about your situation.

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.
