Customer Question
13 years after I was...
13 years after I was a victim in an armed robbery case, a case that ended with the perpetrator being convicted and sentenced, an unknown attorney showed up at my daughters dancing school looking for me. No phone call, no email, just decided to go IN PERSON to my daughters dancing school in the hopes of finding me. After he discovered I wasn't there, rather than leave a business card asking for me to call, he proceeds to explain to the person there all about my involvement with the case from 13 years earlier. He even goes as far as to tell them that despite the fact that the perpetrator was currently in jail, another person supposedly confessed and he wanted me "to look at a line-up." My instincts tell me this is completely abnormal and against proper protocol.....can you help? x

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
