**My name is Antonio C. Martinez II.I have been a practicing Attorney in NY, NJ, and DC since 1996.

Last year, I had the pleasure of meeting Robert Cosmar and CJ Heck, a very sweet senior couple, who are stranded in Florida in the midst of hurricane season.

For a state that prides itself on not allowing its senior citizens to be taken advantage of, Bob and CJ have fallen through a huge crack in that theory. They are survivors of consumer fraud and a legal system that failed them at every turn.

Please read their story and help by sharing it wherever you can. Let’s make it grow wings and fly! They don’t want any other seniors to go through what they did.

Let’s help right a wrong with kindness and generosity, one person at a time. Join me and make a contribution today. Let's do what we can to help so they can truly move forward again.

Thank you.

Most sincerely yours,
