Customer Question
In Florida can I...

In Florida can I get a restraining order against a neighbor who assaulted me and threatened both me and my wife

Lawyer's Assistant: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Florida

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

Incident reported, police responded, no assault marks on me, at the time only witness was my wife. Police did not think there was probable cause. After police left we spoke to a neighbor who saw him walk away but did not see the incident itself

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

The individual saw me taking down a notice that was placed on a bulletin board , accused me of damaging the board (it was not damaged) and demanded I give what I took from the board. I refused, he asked if I wanted to get hurt, then grabbed and twisted my arm and took the notice from me and walked away

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.
