Customer Question
I have a friend...

I have a friend thats being threatened by a call girl for money

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

Saying she'll print out text messages to give to his wife

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

Not yet he's told me about it but nothing legal as yet

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

That should cover it

Hello,

What you are describing may be criminal extortion by the call girl. The problem, however, is that if the victim/friend contacts law enforcement to complain, and the call girl is arrested and charged with a crime, the friend's activities will become public record and the wife will likely discover what's occurred.

There's no good way to avoid the issue. The friend can either pay the extortion money, or contact law enforcement and tell the wife what's happened, so that it comes as no surprise.

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.
