Raymond was always a champion for the poor.He worked for the save a child federation for years while in school.He also was excepted by all the Indian tribes.and lived with them,and tryed to help them to make a better life for themselves.He always was coming down on the side of the poor,and helped many of the disadvantaged get a decent fair trial,and took many cases knowing he would never be paid for his work.Just wish we could have more attorneys like Raymond.

I guess you've never sat across the table from him in a divorce case. Let me tell you one thing he sure didn't give a damn about my two little boys when my to be ex-husband wanted to get the lowest child support set. Later I found out that he and my husband were good friends & he knew my husband had a good paying job. I guess he thought they could vacation more together if my soon to be ex had more money & to hell with his kids. I feel sorry that he died but he wasn't the great person you guys try to make him out to be. Yeah! Lot's of people help people if it will get them attention.
Thank God, I got through the hard struggles of having to pinch every penny I made at work & the small amount of child support, Mr. Overstreet helped my ex get. I did it, I raised them the best I could. One is an officer in the Army. The other one doing good.

What would you expect him to do?You probaly had a lousy attorney representing you,and you must remember it's the Judge that has the final say is such cases,not the Lawers.Get real or shut up.You probaly got more child support than you deserved.If you had'nt had a live in boy friend supporting you the Judge would have probaly given you more.
i know in my case

I would say you got your moneys worth,you were probaly facing a 20 yr.sentence,or more,and was probaly guilty as hell,and i bet you got a probation.or much less sentence.Some people feel like they should walk free,after commiting the crimes.This fine man is gone let his soul rest in peace,god will make the final judgements.

You should be ashamed of yourself for trying to bring out such shit,after a person is deceased,and can't defend themself,It just shows what type a person you probaly are.If you was'nt guilty why did you even hire a lawer.You was probaly guilty,and knew it,and i bet it was drug related.Put your real name out there ,and lets just see your past records.I bet they don't look good.

Well Masonic brother, if your the type of person Raymond run with, then that's not saying much. No mother deserves to have to struggle to feed a mans children while he sits with a full belly. Thats bullish*t.

I know you,and i know you was just a big Ho is why he divorced you to start with,and you had more than one man hanging on to you,if your children was hungry it was because you was smoking weed,and snorting it up your nose,and that is why you got such a small amount of support,because you were using it to support your men,and habit.I feel for the kids,and you were lucky that they were not taken away from you.enough said unless you want me to put your real name on here.
