Good evening,

Just because charges are dismissed against one defendant does not mean charges must be dismissed against a co-defendant. Sometimes charges get dismissed/reduced against one defendant in exchange for testimony by that defendant against the others involved. Sometimes, a prosecutor believes that the evidence against one defendant is stronger than against another and that a conviction can be obtained. I obviously have no idea of knowing what the prosecutor's office is thinking, but the bot***** *****ne is the case can proceed against her even if dropped against you.

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.
