Hi I had a...

Hi I had a question.. while I was in school I did a five week intern in a prison clinic in Texas. One of the days I was there a inmate came into the clinic. I saw him for his appointment and he told me a little about him and had told me I was very pretty. I didn’t say anything back but kind of smiled..

Lawyer's Assistant: Have any charges been filed? If so, when is the next court date?

No cause nothing happened

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a TX lawyer about this yet?

I was going to ask if I would get in trouble if I wrote him

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

I’m not there anymore or planning on actually working there it was just for a clinic rotation but I didn’t want to write him if I could get in trouble just because I thought someone was attractive

You probably should not as it could very easily be deemed a HIPAA violation. Do you have any sort of contract or policies and procedures for the clinic that address patient contact?

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.
