Customer Question
I've been suffering intimidation...

I've been suffering intimidation and abuse, I'm 65 and had a triple heart bypass and I'm now getting chest pains

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

California

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

There's not much I can I can do and I've got no heating, no oven or microwave and they've locked all the doors except the front door. It was 41 degrees on Friday in the house

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

I pay half the rent and utilities

I would like to bring charges of abuse, intimidation and causing me much stress, which my doctor says could be potentially life threatening
Lawyer: LegalKnowledge, Attorney replied 6 months ago

Charges against who?

Ask Your Own Legal Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
The lady who's name is ***** ***** lease and a guy who keeps extremely dangerous weapons and is a convicted felon
Lawyer: LegalKnowledge, Attorney replied 6 months ago

Thank you for the reply. If you want criminal charges filed, they need to be brought by the State. For this to happen, you would need to go to the police and file a report and they can investigate. If there is evidence of these crimes, they can make an arrest and turn the case over to the State to prosecute. Your interest as the victim would then be represented and these people can be charged.

What about reporation?
Lawyer: LegalKnowledge, Attorney replied 6 months ago

The State could see restitution to make you whole if you suffered a loss.

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.
