Customer Question
I had a PFA...

I had a PFA put against me, I counterfiled and was granted it giving the circumstances, paid my attorney fees. I get a call from my attorney and she said she briefly talked to my X filling in for another attorney in what is a completely different issue. After a few minutes she realized who she was talking to and recuse herself. I ultimately decided to stick with her being the day before. I had tons of home surveillance that basically prove that she was the aggressor. Long story short we go to the hearing she doesn’t even show up at all her lawyer basically said she’ll drop hers if you drop yours. My attorney and I agreedway I’m going for

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken? Have you filed any papers in family court?

The hearing is over basically both PFA’s got dropped but she wasn’t even there and my attorney didn’t even argue that she made false testimony and what not.! I felt like I Was in a play orchestrated but was the only person who was unaware of it and I was left holding the bag. My ex had free attorneys she get free housing basically lied and I prove it with video evidence so I called my attorney out on it and didn’t even get a contract in the mail until after the hearing etc. Was in a play orchestrated but was the only person who was unaware of it and I was left holding the bag.

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.
