Please help Cheryl and I pay for Charlie's legal expenses. As parents, we have exhausted all of our funds and, like a lot of people today, are living paycheck to paycheck. We were not expecting legal fees, but to help our son, we now are asking for help.

My name is Charles Simmons Jr. Most people that know me call me Charlie. I have worked my entire adult life and rarely would I ask for help, whether because of pride getting in the way or just being stubborn. I was taught at a young age to try to be self sufficient. Well, like a lot of people, I lost my job a few years ago during the Great Recession and went without work for a few months, which set us behind a little and destroyed our savings.

My wife Cheryl and I are trying to raise money to pay for legal expenses for our oldest son, who is also named Charles. He says you can call him Charlie, too. He has legal expenses that we cannot be specific about on this forum because legally speaking, it would not be prudent to discuss at this time. I would not have a problem giving more details once this is over with and in our rear-view mirror.

The money would be used to pay attorney fees, court costs, and such as determined by the legal system. One thing that amazes us is that without a good lawyer, you can be mis-represented and be faced with legal issues you never dreamed possible.

If you can help, please donate whatever you feel comfortable giving. You can donate by debit/credit card through PayPal. Even the smallest of donations will add up over time. Can you please share with your own families and friends? The more people that we can reach, the sooner we can meet our goal. We are hopeful that with the proper representation, Charlie will be able to get back to a normal life. Thank you!
