My wife and I found ourselves in an uncomfortable, confusing, and scary situation. We were being told we owed a sum of money we hadn’t planned for and could not afford. The team at Open Communities gave us prompt, personable counsel and advised us on the best ways to proceed. We were able to find resolution with our landlord and avoid litigation. The clarity and support we received gave us incredible peace of mind and helped us reach our goals.
