No Muss No Fuss Consultation
I had an apartment complex keep my deposit after claiming I lied an application over an "ambiguous at best" question. Kevin told me all the details I need, where I had ground and they did. Just based on his consultation I was able to resolve the issue.
Response from Kevin Sutherland August 30, 2017
Jason: Thank you for your review of my services! I am grateful for your endorsement of my insight and delighted to hear I could be of service.
