Customer Question
I have a follow up...
I have a follow up to my previous question. What if I can't get the videotape in question from the original source, the one that did the illegal videotaping, but I can get it from a secondary source. Will the secondary source be charged with anything, even if I don't want them to. I just want the person who did this to be held accountable.

Ok, but can I proceed even if I don't have any proof. The person who did the illegal videotaping has it, but I can't get to it. Also I don't have much money to pay a lawyer. Will this be a criminal case?
Customer reply replied 8 years ago
How do I get the process going. Do I have to get a lawyer in my area. And I want to be sure that only the person who videotaped and invaded my privacy will be held accountable.

The IllinoisLawyerFinder Phone Service

How does your phone service work?

Call(NNN) NNN-NNNNor toll free(NNN) NNN-NNNN the referral clerk will need only basic information (your name, address, brief description of legal need) and will then refer you to a lawyer in the geographic area requested. (All information provided will be treated as strictly confidential.)

You will contact the referred lawyer’s office to make an appointment at a time that is convenient for you. The lawyer will not contact you. Be sure you tell the lawyer you were referred by the IllinoisLawyerFinder phone service so you will receive the special rate for the first half-hour.

After the initial consultation, you are under no obligation to proceed with the referred lawyer if additional service is needed. It is up to you to authorize the lawyer to proceed on your behalf.

How much does the lawyer charge?

Again, the lawyer has agreed to provide a half-hour consultation for a fee not to exceed $25. It is up to you to contact the lawyer for an appointment. Be sure you tell the lawyer that you were referred by the IllinoisLawyerFinder phone service so you will receive the half-hour consultation as described above. You are not obligated to hire the lawyer, and the lawyer is not obligated to represent you. If you decide to make another appointment with the lawyer or authorize the lawyer to take action to assist you with your legal problem, be sure to discuss the fee for further services.
