I am being stalked/followed, harassed, and defamed. The

Customer Question
I am being stalked/followed...

I am being stalked/followed, harassed, and defamed. The people who follow me go into the establishments that I conduct business with-restaurants, doctor offices, grocery stores, etc. and get security and management to follow me. A former neighbor is behind this. Do I have any legal recourse. What do I do to get evidence about this as I know what they are doing is illegal. I have called the police a few different times causing these people to become very cunning. They are defaming me to people. Thank you.

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

Colorado

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

If you mean have I filed or reported. I have been to the police a number of times. I have called the police at three different stores I was in when I was being followed.

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

I have hired a PI and I have taken photos of license plates and he has sent me who these people are and they are a variety of people. But early on I have seen the same person but in different vehicles.

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.
