Shown here is an email exchange I had with the first lawyer recommended to me by the document expert I hired. (See my 9/16/09 post below entitled "She Said".) The document expert recommended this attorney (who specializes in personal injury law) when I first met with her and hired her (which was the day before she said she'd had some sort of mysterious all-day meeting; I'm not sure why she told me about this).
On the morning of June 14, 2006, my cell phone rang while I was sitting in the waiting room at the dentist's office waiting to get my teeth cleaned. The number came up as being from San Antonio [I can provide the entire number]. When I answered, a man who sounded like this lawyer said my former brother-in-law's name in a questioning manner. [My former brother-in-law is also a personal injury lawyer.] I told the caller they had the wrong number, and they immediately hung up without saying anything else.
As you can see here, this lawyer refused to represent us a few days later, so I called the other attorney the document examiner referred me to as shown below in "She Said". (I then met with and hired this second attorney, but I later had to fire her as I explained in "My Story" at the beginning of this blog.)
Coincidentally, a 30-year-old man from Austin with the same somewhat unusual last name as the lawyer in this email exchange was shot to death in our town on 10/28/06. This fatal shooting happened at a home just off the same road that borders my property to the north, but about a mile past my place to the west. The young man was supposedly killed by the owner of the house because he was trying to break in. The newspapers reported that the Texas Rangers were investigating, but as far as I know, no charges were ever filed in the case.
There are some other odd coincidences regarding this shooting. The victim's mother's last name (which is different from her son's) is the same as that of 3 local siblings who also died fairly young. (At least 2 of these died suddenly around the same time.) A step-brother of the victim's has the same last name as that of the lawyer Ed Hodges used for the fraudulent trust he forged my initials on and illegally manipulated and is from the same city. The lifelong best friend of the victim (according to his obituary) happens to live in a rental house owned by my ex-husband that borders my property, and this friend lost his own sister in a suspicious car accident years ago. Furthermore, this same best friend also happens to be a cousin of one of my former father-in-law's and brother-in-law's long-time law partners. [Now are you thoroughly confused??]
