Customer Question

During the trial the defendants attorney brought out all my medical records from my personal doctor and my prescription drug records from my pharmacist. She had obtained them by a subpoena that neither th D A or I had been served with. I want to do whaterever I can legally against this firm and the two places that gave info out without my signing a Hippa form

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

North Carolina

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

Not sure what you mean by filed or reported

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

Also not sure. Will we be chatting or talking on the phone

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.
