Customer Question
I have a dismissed...

I have a dismissed domestic violence charge. It was first dropped down to a misdemeanor assault, then it was dismissed all together when I went to trial. All that was asked of me was to complete a 30 week domestic violence course and 30hrs of community service.

Lawyer's Assistant: OK. The Military Lawyer will need to help you with this. Have you consulted a lawyer yet?

I already went to OCS for the Marine Corps last Jan 2015 before any of this happened.

Lawyer's Assistant: Sorry about that. I must have missed it. Could you tell me again?

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.
