Customer Question
I had an argument...

I had an argument last night that turned physical. i believe my daughter in law will try to press assault charges on me. she was in my home arguing with my son. i asked her to leave in which she became hostile and i ended up slapping her in the face.

Lawyer's Assistant: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Pennsylvania

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

No at work and considering it. i am not sure if she did press charges but i believe she will out of spite.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Just that this girl has been part of my life for six years and i loved her like a daughter.

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.
