Don't give up
I called over ten lawyers in one day, and this was they only one willing to listen. I have a child support issues that is very complexed. The advice provide was priceless and free. He was honest about the price and provided me with the assistance to follow up strong. $1,500 to pled guilty or $7500 to fight but understand the $1,500 don't fix the problem, just get me to the next big problem. Might that he was trying to up sale his services, he wanted me to understand the difference. After the advices provide, I will not give up and fight the end. Thank you Thomas
