How do I get my money refunded I am not satisfied with the service
Criminal Lawyer: ScottyMacEsq, Lawyer replied 2 years ago

I want to assist you, but we're here to answer questions. You've stated what you're trying to do, but have not asked a question. Before I can answer a question I need to know what the question is...

how do I go about filing a restraining order
Criminal Lawyer: ScottyMacEsq, Lawyer replied 2 years ago

Contact the police and say that you want a restraining order. You can also contact the court. We provide much more specific answers (that is, if they said you can't get a restraining order because of X, etc...) that might be a different matter, because then we could give you an answer on how to navigate the legal issues.

I'm going to opt out and send this to customer service for your refund.

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.
