Hello,



My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am one of JustAnswer's attorneys. I'll be helping you resolve your matter today.



Please remember that there might be a delay between your follow up questions and my answers because I may be helping other clients or taking a break.



Is this for an ongoing legal matter that has already been filed?

NO I JUST WANT TO GET MY DELETED TEXT MESSAGE CONTEXTS MAILED TO ME FROM THESE PAST COUPLE MONTHS AND THEY WONT DO IT UNLESS I GET A LAWYER OR LAW ENFORCEMENT TO CONTACT THEM DIRECTLY.
Lawyer: Ely, Counselor at Law replied 8 years ago
Correct. During litigation, you can subpoena the records with a subpoena duces tecum. You can't ask for a subpoena duces tecum unless there is a lawsuit. So you can't get those records unless you sue someone and subpoena the records, sorry.

Best of luck in your matter. I'm here if you need any more clarification or follow up information.



I hope you found my answer helpful, and if so please click on the ACCEPT button. This is the only way for me to get credit for my work - when you put in your payment information, I receive no credit for my time with you unless you press ACCEPT.



There is no fee for follow up questions should you wish to continue in this thread.



Remember, sometimes the law under which your situation falls does not give you the outcome or the choices you wanted - please understand that this is not the attorney's fault, but the way of circumstance.



There might be a delay between your follow up questions and my answers because I may be helping other clients or taking a break.



If you feel that I went an extra step to help, a bonus would be appreciated!



You can always request me for a future legal consultation through my profile at http://www.justanswer.com/profile.aspx?PF=7286322&FID=7 If you do this, make sure to begin the question with “This Question is for Eli…”

Relist: IF I HIRED A PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR COULD THEY RECEIVE INFORMATION FROM VERIZON WIRLESS DIRECTLY IF I THOUGH MY FIAN'CE WAS CHEATING ON ME?.
IF I HIRED A PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR COULD THEY RECEIVE INFORMATION FROM VERIZON WIRLESS DIRECTLY IF I THOUGH MY FIAN'CE WAS CHEATING ON ME?
Customer reply replied 8 years ago
COULD I HIRE A PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR RECEIVE THAT INFORMATION FROM VERIZON IF I HIRED THEM TO FIND OUT IF MY FIAN'CE WAS CHEATING ON ME?
Lawyer: Ely, Counselor at Law replied 8 years ago
Possibly yes, but don't ask them how they would do it b/c their method would involve tapping into private data - illegal. I can help you find an affordable PI in your area if you'd like?

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

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.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
