Hello and thank you for entrusting me to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do everything I can to answer your question.

Do you have a non-compete agreement? Do you have some sort of contract that says you can't work for clients? What exactly is the basis for the employer's legal threat here? I very much look forward to helping you on this matter.
