For the lawyers here...
A friend of mine needs legal advice.

She would greatly appreciate any lawyers here to list their usernames, so she can PM them.

She will explain why she's going to these lengths when you talk to her.

Thanks!

3. Yes, I sure can...
Family, or perhaps better would be privacy issues.

Thanks for your good question.

I hope it helps.

2. One issue...
Lawyers are limited on how much advice they can provide to an individual in a jurisdiction where they are not admitted to practice.

That's why I would be very hesitant to help your friend out, but was able to play phone tag with Zanne over a problem she's dealing with.

4. I understand.
My friend will see your name, and perhaps she will PM you...

Then you can decide if your help would do any good...

9. Your request is, by necessity vague
However, rumor has it that a legal
eagle named Oily Taters can lend a
hand. I kid, of course. Best of luck
to your friend. He/she called on the
right person.
