Legal Fees for Family Friend

In Jan 2015, Nathan was charged with some very serious offences and after considerable delay, as noted by the courts, found not guilty.  Although, authorities knew that the so called “witnesses” had lied on tape, they continued their vendetta against him as well as spread vicious rumors among people that claimed to be his friends and for no other reason than their own homophobia.  To defend himself against these lies and have the truth be known came with a hefty price tag.  The legal fees totaled more than $110,000!

Nathan was a very active young man. He has a particular love for music, and has been a member of many bands over the years. He really enjoys getting outdoors, and spending time with friends. He is a hard working individual, constantly working, day and night, to try to make enough money to make it through the month.

He is currently working on a set of plans to build his dream tiny home! He has always enjoyed spending time with friends and family, and will always go out of his way to be involved with them as much as possible. Nathan has a very kind heart, and is always giving of his time and talents, whenever someone is in need. 

His current life goal, is to be able to build his own tiny home, and to live within his means.
Nathan has always put little value on things, and belongings. He would much rather have just what he needs to get by, and be able to spend more of his time with his family and friends. He has always been able to support himself, however with this large debt, I know he has been struggling to be able to do that. Nathan has spoken many times about planning to sell his car, to be able to repay just a little bit more of this debt. When he is done his day job in the construction industry, you will often find him working late, designing and building furniture, or taking on small jobs to help others.

Nathan's dedication to moving forward with his life is nothing short of amazing. He has never asked for money, always wanting to get through this on his own, he continues to do his best in repaying this massive debt.

It's difficult to see such a young man struggle as he has. Nathan has always tried to remain strong and positive throughout this ordeal! This debt has put some serious strain on his life, and on him being able to be the outgoing, caring, generous, kind, selfless man that I have known for so many years.

I simply ask, that if you can spare even a few dollars, to help Nathan get back on his feet, you will also be able to see what a wonderful young person he is! Your donation would mean the world to him and his family.
