Customer Question
Good evening, I am...

Good evening, I am having issues with my HOA. Seeking advice from an HOA lawyer in Torrance.

Lawyer's Assistant: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state the association is in?

California

Lawyer's Assistant: Has any paperwork been filed?

Nothing has been done yet. I'm waiting for the HOA to simply resolve the issue.

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

Nothing really. Just want an HOA lawyer to listen to my problem because I really don't know if I am wrong or right. I think in 5 minutes a lawyer can easily decide if I am in the wrong or in the right.

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.
