Customer Question
Hi, I just wanted...

Hi, I just wanted to know how to go about a situation and thought I can ask a lawyer for help. My ex boyfriend has been repeatedly harassing me and threatening to hurt me. He approached me recently and had shouted verbal threats, and had spit on me as well. I do have messages that show him harrasing me and threatening me. I just want that to end so how should I go about this situation.

Lawyer's Assistant: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Brooklyn, New York.

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

Not yet. Should I report him for the messages?

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.
