Good morning Lucy. How did your trial go yesterday?
Good morning Tom, it is great to see you. It went well thank you!
That is great to hear!
Do you recall hearing about the young girl that passed away last weekend in her home?
Yes! It is devastating news! I couldn’t possibly imagine what the family must be going through.
Well Lucy, I received a phone call this morning requesting our firm to take on the case. More specifically, they have requested to see you. The police are treating Sadie's death as a murder and your client Susan Boyd, is the mother being charged! She would like to come in and see you immediately.
What! Every other week I am getting Susan off for something! She can never seem to stay out of trouble; but this! I am not sure I will be able to represent a case like this. I sure hope she is not guilty. However, I will talk to her. Please arrange a meeting at 1pm, thank you Tom.
Good afternoon Susan, it is great to see you again. How have you been since our last visit?
It is nice to see you too Lucy. I suppose I have been okay, considering..
Yes, I can’t trust anyone else with the job. You have gotten me off every time, and I know you will again!
I am pleased to hear you have been coping well. My assistant Tom has informed me of your current situation and mentioned you would like me to handle your case?
