Customer Question
I am involved in...

I am involved in an investigation at work which I am one of the suspects in the matter, but do not know what the charges against me are and would like to have an attorney

Lawyer's Assistant: What were you charged with exactly? Do you have any upcoming court dates?

I do not know, they would not tell me. I most likely will be interrogated by the justice center and my agency also has an interrogator that will do an interrogation as well

Lawyer's Assistant: In what state did this occur?

NY

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

My character has also been slandered in the matter and now they are trying to not allow me to use my accrued time for my absence
