Customer Question
I work at a nursing...
I work at a nursing home as a nurse. I was sent to the hospital for a drug test because they thought I was under the influence of drugs and my count was short. The cops came to the hospital and after my drug test took me to the station. I answered all their questions and they searched me and found nothing. My drug test came back negative as I knew it would and I am back to work with a written plan on protocols that I will do for drug disbursement. I have to go next week on the complaint my employer filed with the police. I'm not sure what to do. Do I need an attorney?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
