Customer reply replied 8 years ago

I am representing my sister, apparantly the Health Services agency has been working with her, to correct a code enforcement violation.

There was a family altercation, she called the police, the police deemed she was a threat to her self and others, she was taken in for observation. Code Enforcement was called (hoarding) the house was red-tagged, no entry, The a couple of days later, Health services agency showed up with haulers and removed items from her front and back yard without notice or authorization. When asked to produce a warrant, everything came to a hault.

Lawyer: Richard - Bizlaw, Attorney replied 8 years ago

Was the personal property taken yours or your sister's. Was the stuff on the front and back property in violation of local ordinances? Was all the property taken outside the house as opposed to inside the house?

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.
