Rick, I was confident from reading about you on your website that you would be able to get to the bottom of how a fabricated Emergency Stalking - No Contact Order was enforced against me by a judge who did so in my absence, meaning that I could not be there at the time to defend myself. I was confident you would see to it that I was exonerated from the false allegations made about me by a former Chicago Police Officer. You are a godsend. I was looking at losing my job and everything I have. I didn't want to take any chances so I went with the best of the best. Thank you very much. I will always be appreciative of your effort and ultimate success in this matter. In my opinion you are worth your weight in gold. I was pleasantly surprised to find how affordable your fees are. I would also like to thank you for providing me the information I needed to be able to expunge the temporary order that was enforced against me. It was a nightmare and I am glad it is over. The best part is that I was able to learn through experience that you are the man for the job no matter how difficult. I wish you continued success in your endeavors going forward. I would not hesitate to contact you again for any legal matter. One more thing, I did appreciate how you explained the legal process pertaining to these types of orders every step of the way so I understood what was going on. Thank you. C.M.
