Neighbor from Hell!

Lawyer's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

Lived in my house for 14 years. They moved 2 years ago. Things were neighborly,but she was a little strange. Then it started escalating to enchrochment,cutting our privacy hedge, wetting us with her hose, acting up whenever we are relaxing or working in our yard. Cursing at us... To the point of calling the police 6 times , filling for restraint order( almost got it ) ... By advice of police installed cameras that has not deter her. Painted fence , had walk around the yard with knife looking at us.... Afraid to even open the door to the backyard . My life has become a nightmare ,and she has gotten away with a psychotic behavior .

Hello

This is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.

I am sorry to hear of this matter.

What information can I provide for you in this regard?
Why wasn't the restraining order issued? Did you have camera evidence at the time? Do you have camera evidence now?

What state is this in, please?

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.
