Yes , police report, 3 civil superior suits

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today. Unfortunately, for civil cases, you are correct in that no matter what theory you sue under, the most likely statute of limitations is going to be three years and as a result, your claim is going to be time barred.

The other problem too is that there is also a statute of limitations that would prevent a DA from prosecuting the crime. The only way this statute of limitations does not apply is if the robbery took place by means of force or threat of force when it occurred (such as a threat to you when they were committing the robbery).

There are some instances where the statute of limitations might be tolled (such as when the the person committing the crime has fled and is on the run from the law). A court may find that the statute of limitations does not begin to run until the property is returned to you or the employees openly and notoriously hold the stolen property. As a result, your civil case might be allowed to go forward on the theory that the statute of limitations has not even begun to run yet because the theft of your property is still occurring (this is known as conversion of property by theft).

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.
