Re: testifying

As a victim, you have many rights, including the right to NOT cooperate with the prosecution. However, you must appear and testify truthfully if you are lawfully served with a subpoena.

Though I have provided you with the major points, there is too much to cover via e-mail. I would be happy to discuss the issues more in-depth with you by phone or in-person. I offer a free, no-obligation, ½ hour consultation (telephonic or in-office) if you would like to discuss the matter in more detail. In addition, I would be happy to arrange a mutually suitable payment plan, should you choose to retain my services.

Call me directly to discuss the specifics of your case, or contact my legal assistant, Brenda, (602) 255-0333, to schedule a free ½ hour in-office consultation. I wish you the best and look forward to talking with you.
