Customer Question
Hi Lucy, one last question...
Hi Lucy, one last question on this. In preparing our statements of events, my husband (who picked up Miley) advised that the clerk who handed Miley to him and charged him for the grooming session, specifically informed him that they had trouble with her when grooming her paws. She informed him that the groomer asked her to help give her a hand when grooming her paws because she was getting very frantic. The business owner and groomer have both claimed time and time again that they NEVER touched her paws, as Miley did not let them.Should I serve this employee in order to be a witness in the case as she is our key to proving that Miley's paws were indeed groomed by them; therefore, further confirming this injury had to have happened there?

Good morning,

Since they are denying having groomed your dog's paws at all, yes, that employee is a good witness. They can be subpoenaed to come testify to prove that the owner/groomer are lying. And if they're lying about that, then the judge can choose to believe they're lying about EVERYTHING. A witness who proves the other party isn't telling the truth is extremely valuable.

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.
