You need to spend some time with a lawyer to prepare for an interview. Then you can decide what you will say, and how much. You don't have to say anything of course. Sometimes a prepared statement is useful, or a complete denial. But best to talk to the lawyer first.

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.
