Hi,

I’m Zoey, and I am an experienced attorney. I know your question is important to you and I will be giving it the time and attention it deserves.

In case you would like a faster response, the site will automatically offer you an optional phone call for an additional fee. No need to choose a phone call unless you'd like one. I’m happy to type or to talk.

Are you looking to get this woman charged with a crime?   Are you looking to get a civil restraining order agaiinst her?

Criminal lawyers defend people who are charged with crimes.  They do not represent victims.   So unless this woman has charged you with a crime, you wouldn't need to retain a criminal lawyer.

If you want to report HER for what he's done and get HER charged with a crime, you would just go and report the crime to the police and let them know you would cooperate with her prosecution.   If the police believe a crime was committed, they would turn the file over to a prosecutor for the filing of charges.  That prosecutor is a lawyer and he or she would represent your interests in court.   So you wouldn't need any other lawyer at all.

If what you want is a civil restraining order, a civil litigator (trial lawyer) in general civil practice would be what you would need to represent you at the administrative hearing to get your temporary order converted to a permanent one.

If there's something else you were looking to do, or if this doesn't address all you need it to, just reply with more information for me and I'll be happy to expand my answer.

I do have another question, I work at the VA in Fayetteville and have received annonimious texts saying g that some patients daughter had turned me in for sexual misbehavior in a pt room , I would never do anything like that… this is I’m thinking nurse friends with stacey Daniels in which it was her not me but who she was with told pt family it was me…. But I receive so many bad texts from multiple people with numbers that can’t be traced back.. I don’t know what to believe anymore…

There's no way to stop such matters unless you know for sure who is behind it.   You can, and should, report the texts to the police in case they can trace where the numbers are coming from.   But they can't launch an investigation or get search warrants just to fish for who the defendant might be.   They need an actual defendant to get a warrant.

You could hire a digital forensics expert who might be able to identify more about where the texts originated from.  Or, you can hire a private investigator. Once you can pinpoint culprits the police can act.

Meanwhile, you should not respond to such texts.    Save them for the authorities or take screenshots but don't reply.  They will have a better chance of stopping if you ignore them which shows the sender that they aren't pushing your buttons.

Customer
They use an application for the texts so can not be traced back, I don’t ever answer the texts, only a few times asking why she is doing this to me..
