I am being followed...

I am being followed around by people in my neighborhood. My neighbor across the street sits on his deck and types on his phone as I leave my house. The next thing I notice is two or three cars all cutting me off as I try to exit the neighborhood. Is this a form of stalking? Is this illegal?

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far? Have you prepared or filed any paperwork?

No, I don't to make any trouble.

Lawyer's Assistant: Where is the house located?

Right across the street. He can also view into my house, so I keep my windows covered.

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.
