Customer Question
I just got black...

I just got black mailed by someone on Facebook for sextortion. I'm trying to see if there was a way to get authorities to help or legal action.

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

I'm stationed in California

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

Well none it just happened. And I was forced to pay the person. When they threatened to send everything to my family.

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

Just want to know what I can do to fix this.

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.
