Lawyer's Assistant: In what state did the blackmail occur?

Arizona The person stole from me and damaged my vehicle which is what I want to report.

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.
