I was told by someone in the industry that I worked in years…

Customer Question
I was told by someone...
I was told by someone in the industry that I worked in for many years that my name is ***** ***** within that industry. This individual told me who, but has not contacted me again regarding what was said. I have attempted to contact him to no avail. For over two years now I have been trying to find work in said industry. I took some time away from working to earn another degree. At first a lot of interest is shown by prospective employers because of my experience, but then there is just radio silence. All I know is that the individual who is allegedly making statements about me is under the impression that I stabbed him in the back, but I did not. I have spoke to him and he indicated that it was forgotten, but apparently that is not true. All of us in this niche industry belong to the same organizations. Question: Can I have certain people that I believe know what is being said subpoenaed so that I at least know if there is enough reason to have cease and desist issued?

I am sorry for your troubles. If you were to file a legal action yes you could ask the judge to order subpoenas of any witnesses. If anyone is already willing to cooperate an affidavit where they state the facts would help.

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.
