In the May 3 Register, there was an article on free legal advice. It gave two days people could call the numbers listed for free legal advice.

On Thursday, I called and was told by the young lady who answered that I was calling too early -- 4:55 p.m. -- and that service would not be available until 5 p.m. At 5:05 p.m. I called again and the answering machine stated the office was closed and I had the option of leaving a voice mail message for several different people. I did this, leaving a message in each mail box but no one returned my call. They could have called to say why they did not follow through with what was mentioned in the story.

As was mentioned in the story, lawyers are among the top earners in the United States. However through all of the experiences I have had with them, they have one thing on their minds and that is to make people wait for an answer to anything that you have to ask them, so that they can make more money, and then call and say, "I have been unable to reach you by phone," which is a joke as we have an answering machine and have been receiving phone calls all the time.
