Your day started out just like every other day. You go through your typical daily routine. Over a cup of coffee, you check the headlines for the latest news. A plane has crashed leaving no survivors while expectant loved ones morn them when they learn of the tragedy. The president tweeted something outlandish once again that makes you scratch your head that has drawn him another heavy dose of criticism. Some famous Hollywood actor or producer has been accused of groping an up and coming starlet who is suing him for a small fortune. A priest has been excommunicated after years of sexual abuse that the diocese claimed not knowing about and tried to sweep it under the carpet. A crazed husband commits a murder-suicide after being served with divorce papers. Another terrorist tunnel attack is thwarted by the Israelis. The Iranians call for the death to America. You read through any new emails that came in over night and reply as necessary.
As the day rolls on, things are pretty predicable. The mail gets delivered. You shuffle through the various solicitations and other junk mail, then you see it. Your heart skips a beat. It’s a letter from the local United States Attorney’s Office. It’s addressed to you. Your body starts to shake and your hands tremble as you tear open the envelope and begin to read.
Dear Mr. / Ms. So & So:

What should you do? After you sit down and collect your thoughts you come to the inescapable conclusion that you need help and you need it from someone who well versed in handling matters like this.
