Customer Question
I want to see...

I want to see if I have any legal power for what I would consider harrasment

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

Florida

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have been taken so far?

I have called the police who suggested I file a restraining order however, the person is elderly and I am not concerned about her causing me physical harm however, it is starting to border on emotional abuse as well as lost wages for the time I have spent engaging in her attempts to torment me. The time I called the police, I would not answer my door so she started pounding so hard, she damaged my door. That is why I wanted record of her actions

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

I think that is all, I have saved several letters she has posted on my door. One includes a claim that she takes pictures of my packages to "incriminate" me for my "illegal business activity". Which is false. I do not nor have I ever run an illegal business out of my residents

I want to know if I have a case against my neighbor to sue for pain and suffering for her constant harassment. Thank you
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I don’t want to pay. I just want to know if I have a reasonable case before I spend one more ounce of time or money. I have had to leave work to come home losing wages
Lawyer: Phillips Esq., Attorney-at-Law replied 8 months ago

This is a pay for answer site. If you not willing to pay for services provided, then I will need to opt out of the post.

I am not talking about a phone call. If you are getting an offer for a phone call, that's not coming from me. The offer was automatically made by the site. Also, I do not participate in the phone call program.

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.

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.
