A resident of Louisiana (validated name, address and phone number link through Spokeo)
recently left many text and voice messages that are grossly obscene in nature and more serious, threatening and/or promise to "Kill Me" which I've documented. Outside of notifying my local Police Dept.( located in Atlanta, GA) and filing a restraining order, what possible legal charges could be filed against the resident of Louisiana if I were to hire/retain an Attorney?

Those are the two legal recourses you would have available. If you have already done these two things, you are going to have taken the appropriate measures. You will also want to contact your phone carrier to have that number blocked, and will want to make a phone log of anytime you are contacted by this person (you don't have to stay on the phone, just hang up, but record when they call).

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.

TonyApopka, FL

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.
