I am not a lawyers but I am aware that any project or given task have a certain timeframe.
Please refer to attach emailed document #2 for reference. September 18, 2017.
I would like to inform you that my relative is thinking his case which have a timeframe on it was being handle correctly because I stated to him directly that I am working with a lawyer and waiting for their reply. Until this day of January 9, 2018 I still have not inform him that he does have a lawyer.
I have waited with great attention that my relative was being taking care of. I did not call them back 2 back in any form. I only receive emails with no proof that a case for Inmate#44696-424 was filed. On November 25, 2017 I email Criminal Paralegal Jessica informing her that the Lawyer had the wrong information about my relative but she clearly stated she was working on the case. I ask on several occasion to provide proof of documents regarding inmate#44696-424 Mantrell L. Johnson none was never given not even today January 9, 2018.
Please refer to attach email document #3 November 21, 2017, November 25, 2017
I want my deposit of $3000 which was made on August 25, 2017 return ASAP and my (3) payment of $500 return as well in the amount of $4,500.00 for not being represented and receiving not document from the Federal Courts of United States in regards to the appeal of inmate#44696-424 Mantrell L. Johnson this is hard breaking because I was thinking National Freedom Project was working on his behalf but this was not the case. Criminal Paralegal Chitty and Jessica did not hesitate when it was time for payment but when I requested proof of filing the doors was shut tightly. I have also file complaint with Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan office File# OAG2018-000049321
