Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

Assault is an intentional hitting or attempt to hit with the intent of causing harm. An accidental touching does not fall under the legal definition of assault.

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.
