Hi,

I'm Zoey.

I've reviewed your post. JustAnswer is not a law firm and so lawyers here cannot provide actual representation of customers. Nobody here can be retained to go to court for you. It would be a violation of site rules and the rules of our respective bar associations. Similarly, we are unable to refer you to a specific lawyer or law firm.

If you wish, however, I can direct you to the same sources that lawyers themselves use when they need to confer with counsel in another state or legal specialty and don't know of anyone.

Let me know if you'd be interested in that information.

Certainly. You would be searching for a civil lawyer. One in general practice would have experience with civil restraining orders.

A good starting point would be the California Bar Association's Lawyer Referral Service. They promise you a lawyer in good standing with his licensing authority. They would charge you a fee of about $50 for the referral, but that includes a free initial half-hour consultation with the attorney.

http://apps.americanbar.org/legalservices/lris/directory/main.cfm?id=CA

There are also private lawyer referral services. Two that are well-regarded are www.Martindale.com and www.Avvo.com. Many of their lawyers are peer and client-rated, which can help you narrow down your choices.

I strive for 5-star service. If I have addressed all of your concerns, please take the time to rate my service to you by selecting 5 stars on the rating scale, as a rating of okay or better is the only way that JustAnswer will give us Experts credit for our work. You would still be able to post further follow-ups on this question thread about this for no additional cost, even after I've been rated.

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.
