I’m in need of legal representation regarding bedbugs at a Motel 6. I’ve done all the necessary steps but at this point have had no luck in finding a law office to represent me. Please,can you help me? This motel chain should be held accountable. I’ve watched new Motel6 tv commercials and shaking my head in despair. 🙁
