No one ever called the police and they keep harrasing,I threw the trash away because it was olot,I suffer from panic attacks and PTSD and have no medication because their expensive and a don't have a medic plan please I need help it's affecting my health already.

I'm sorry I don't have a connected phone until Monday.
Lawyer: DanLegal, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

I am very sorry to hear about this situation - You have two options, but they go hand in hand. The first thing I would recommend doing is documenting everything that has happened and get an order of protection against your neighbors which would prohibit them from having any violent or harassing contact with you and not allow them to throw garbage or mess with you in any way. And if they do, there will be a criminal charge. The second option would be to file a nuisance claim in civil court against them for everything that has been going on. Again, you can present all the instances of negative activity against you.

For the order of protection - there will be people to assist you at the court house, but I would recommend hiring a civil attorney for the nuisance claim. Also, in the future you need to document/call the police any time there is an issue

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.
