I have never been to Massachusetts but my X lives there. She took out many restraining orders against me like six or more which I knew nothing, of until I visited my family in my home state. The local police would not post anything to my family's home. But when I returned after a year of living in a different part of the county I was welcomed back with a Federal Harassment Charge. I am glad I found Mr. Hallinan because he made that matter disappear. I don't have a clue what the problem was or why. I spoke with the Federal Marshals here and they told me to never enter that state under my own free will . Hallinan is the best, yet I have never met him. He is a good, and fair man, even as a lawyer. But I have to wonder what is the problem with MA I am sure you are think there is more to this, but remember with the Marshals told me, I can only say There IS NO MORE TO IT and there never was ! I don't know what the Federal Marshals know and I don't plan to find out. But I know one thing you can trust David, that is a big for sure. I don't know what my lawyer did, I wasn't there, and I will never be there.
