Customer Question
My neighbor has dogs...

My neighbor has dogs that bark at everything. I can not work outside without them barking the whole time. The owners have also made comments (derogatory) on facebook directed at me.

Lawyer's Assistant: The Lawyer will need to help you with this. Have you consulted a lawyer yet?

No

Lawyer's Assistant: Please tell me everything you can about this issue so the Lawyer can help you best. Please give me a bit more information, so we can help you best.

We built a new home across the street from these people (we live on 6 acres). I have approached them and all they do is scream at me. I have called the Sheriff and he won't do anything if the complaint is the dogs barking. I think it is harrassment if I can't step outside without the dogs howling and barking. The last time I talked to them, the owner pulled out an assault rifle and waved it in the air in a menacing fashion. They have also posted libelous statements on facebook.

Lawyer's Assistant: OK. The Lawyer will need to help you with this. Is there anything else the Lawyer should be aware of?

They are very very aggressive and mean spirited. They also are so paranoidthey live in their own self built "prison" with 6 ft walls around their front yard; several signs about no trespassing, bad dog and video cameras in use.

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.

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.
