If/when an American citizen...

If/when an American citizen is attacked in London, has passport and other ID plus money stolen, and the authorities refuse to allow person to leave hospital w/o documents, what is the victim's recourse?

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

Says yes...wit police and contact made with US embassy there.

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

Not at present I am a friend of the victim, and am here in the US. I have been asked to help, but don't know what to advise.

US embassy should expedite departure and handling of a replacement passport. Counsel can also assist. martindale.com and findlaw.com are both excellent lookup directories. Both highly rated. Both used by lawyers. Easy to search and find local options. Please let me know if the reply is acceptable by responding “yes” or “acceptable”

Have informed the victim in Bromwich General Hospital. So far, no reply. But, should be Yes.
Good luck. Would you kindly rate me five stars - that is the only way I get credit by the website. Thank you!

Ok. I am wondering if I have been had by so-called victim. This amount comes hard for me.
Possible. Sometimes victim email or Facebook hacked and contacts friends for money. Be careful.

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.
