Hello and welcome.
My name is ***** ***** my goal is to provide you with excellent service today. I am sorry to hear of your difficult situation. Before I can give you an accurate answer to your question, please provide the following additional information:
The basis for the arrest were your landlord's false statements? Her motivation was to get you evicted more quickly? Did she still have to pursue eviction or are you still living there?
I look forward to assisting you as soon as I have received this information. Thank you.
