I consulted with several lawyers who each wanted to charge me around $250 for a demand letter.  I’m very happy that I was able to write a demand letter myself with JusticeDirect.

I found the JusticeDirect demand letter online. The website was easy for me to understand and I sent my demand letter online certified mail. I’d recommend this to anyone who needs to write a demand letter!
