Hello,

Police reports are inadmissible at trial, so the jury will never see the actual report. If the officer testifies on the stand consistent with his lies and his exaggerations on the report, that's what cross-examination is all about. The defense lawyer will get the opportunity to ask questions designed to discredit the police testimony.

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.
