Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

No but it has been documented by a social worker providing me therapy

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

I need you to be more specific in your question(s) if you could. When we answer general ones like "what are my rights", or "what are my options", we have to give general answers and, invariably, the customer responds with "I already knew that". This type of forum works better if you ask specific questions so we know exactly what you are looking for.

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.
