A: You appear to be asking us to provide you with some method, perhaps illegal, I, for one, will not be engaged in this.

What? Have to pay a lawyer for the work they do? On a criminal case at that? Say its not so! THAT stated, AVVO is no a dollar store version of lawyering where you get lawyers to provide actual reliable legal advice on the cheap so you don't have to pay an actual lawyer to handle important issues - like criminal prosecutions and such.
