Hi,

I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear about your situation.

Often, when people only present a set of facts, the issues that jump out at us aren't necessarily the things you're curious about. Without a list of questions, we frequently wind up telling you things you already knew. With that in mind, what are your specific questions about this fact pattern? It would also help if you could explain a bit more about basis for the appeal.
