There were no objections. Because I was not a lawyer, I was allowed to say more than usual.

I'm not sure why you chose to write about your experiences in the third-person rather than first person. It reads like fiction because of that.

The first chapter was sometimes hard to follow because it wasn't clear if we were flashing back to a memory or it was part of her testimony in the court. I would have expected some objections if it was testimony since she was going beyond her direct experience (in the narration at least).
