A year ago I was charged with phone harassment by a woman

Customer Question

A year ago I was charged with phone harassment by a woman who was having an affair with my husband. I would like to sue for attorneys fees, lost wages and mental anquish. This woman lied to the police three times, I was never told about her claims by the police. Now I have a record for phone harassment, even though the charges were dropped.

I am sorry for this dilemma. But not sure I understand your specific question. Are you asking if you can sue for "mental anguish"?

attorneys fees of 1500.00. Are you licenced in NM? I live in Albuquerque NM.

And what is the basis of your suit? Did she lie about you to cause this mess?

I am not sure that we have a NM attorney on staff. If we did, he/she should have picked this up by now. However, we typically answer questions in all 50 states on a regular basis. If you still need assistance with this, please let me know...
