Customer Question
I was unlawfully imprisoned in...
I was unlawfully imprisoned in a hospital despite my repeasted assertions that I knew their basis for holding me there was illegal. There is a lot of evidence because several people were called, all of whom had the sense to urge me to stay without threatenening me. I was threatened with arrest and loss of job if I left. Fortunately I knew the law and I left. Needless to say, there was no arrest or loss of job. I am interested in suing these practitioners because of the trauma they caused to me and to prevent them from ruining the lives of others through false imprisonment.

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.
