Customer Question
I need an attorney...

I need an attorney to file an appearance in Cook county IL at 9:30 am today to get a continuance on a recently served suit alleging building code violations in La Grange IL

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far? Have you prepared or filed any paperwork?

No I was just served last Sunday. I have printed a pile of correspondence and have done repairs. They just push for a quicker timeframe and really stepped it up over the winter when nothing can be done in IL

Lawyer's Assistant: Where is the property located?

******** La Grange, IL *******

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

I have much to share but at this late hour not sure an atty wants all the details

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.
