" I got sent to a lot of places for help before finding you guys, and this is the first time I feel like I’ve been told what’s right. Maybe now I can legally get rid of my ‘houseguest’ who just won’t leave."Shana (PG County, MARYLAND)
" The apartment complex managers wouldn’t put a “handicapped parking only” on the space closest to my door, even though I’m disabled and have trouble walking more than a few feet (and I even have a state parking permit). Without your help, I would have had to move to out. "Patricia (Baltimore County, MARYLAND)
