I used this service, and the demand letter helped me get paid, I sent it to the agency via email and advised her I was going to send it in the mail she paid me the next day. I forgot to cancel the membership. I called and they gave me a one-time refund. No questions just gave me my refund. I actually got my refund today!

Great template, VERY user friendly and easy to use. Attempting to solve these situations are very stressful but using JusticeDirect made it doable. Along with USPS tracking, I also received a confirmation email from JusticeDirect when it was delivered. After using JusticeDirect, and knowing I started the process of trying to get a resolution, it was a huge relief.
