Good afternoon,

I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. In order to give you a clear and concise answer, I will need some additional information about the circumstances, please.

1. What is scheduled for the 17th---a trial?

2. What is the case all about? Are you suing someone? Are you being sued?
