Customer Question
Hello. I am seeking...

Hello. I am seeking a legal consult regarding a substantiated case of child emotional abuse and gross negligence. I am an LCSW and work in a department of the State of California.

Northern California

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

Child Abuse Reporting Index notified BBS= I believe in mid-late November 2017.

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

I can't think of anything. I need to know what action to take.

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.
