Customer Question
I received a call...

I received a call from an attorney stating I was going to be served restraining papers from someone in another county because I told her boss that she never worked for me and that she was a convicted felon and I emailed him the background on her. The attorney also threaten me with a Lien on my home and business unless I write a letter of apology. He then called me back and said do not contact her as she is represented. He advised me to get an attorney. Not sure what I should do, Just seems weird she hired an attorney for an apology? Does this sound legitimate? What should I do?

Lawyer's Assistant: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

California

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

Not to my knowledge

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

That is all I know

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.
