Transcript-Interrogation of Nicholas Lawson

Interrogating Officers: Sgt. Eric Renfield, Sgt. Adam Dalton

Location: 497 Cross St.-Offices of Lawson, Haynes & Milton

Date: 10/18/2012

Time: 10:30 AM

Dalton: Mr. Lawson.

Lawson: Oh god, not you two again. What is it this time?

Dalton: Cullen Krast is dead.

Lawson: What? Well, who's doing it?

Dalton: We came here to gather information about Cullen Krast. We're still trying to figure out who is behind this. For starters, I have a question for you. Why did you represent all four of them? I would have thought they each would have had separate counsel.

Lawson: Those four idiots wanted to stick together. Having me represent all of them was their idea, not mine. They signed all the consents and waivers, the judge was okay with it, and I got to charge a [EXPLETIVE DELETED] load more. God knows if I'll get paid now. That was a [EXPLETIVE DELETED] investment.

Dalton: So, what can you tell us about Cullen Krast?

Lawson: Oh for the love of- you know everything I know. Look, if someone is hunting down people from that trial, do you think I'm next?

Dalton: Do you have reason to suspect that your life is in danger?

Lawson: What are you kidding me? Do you come down here and tell me these things just to see what I'll do? Are you laughing at me?

Renfield: I assure you, Mr. Lawson, we're just here for information.

Lawson: Well I don't have any [EXPLETIVE DELETED] information. Oh my god, I'm going to have to move. Some psycho is out there trying to avenge Lucy Ludarac. I was just their lawyer. Everyone is entitled to a fair trial.

Dalton: Calm down, Mr. Lawson.

Lawson: No, you calm down. Oh god, I'll go to Arizona. That should be far enough away. Should I bring Shirley and the kids? No, I better not. If someone is after me-

Dalton: Mr. Lawson.

Lawson: I'll call Humphries and have him move some money around. Oh Jesus, I knew that trial was bad news. Now some looney-tune-that case brought in so many clients-I should have known it was too good to be true. Mary? Tell everyone I'm going on vacation and I won't be back for a while.

Renfield: Mr. Lawson.

Lawson: What? I'm going to Arizona. Oh my god, but don't tell anyone that. Tell them I'm going to, oh god, where do people go on vacation? Maui. Tell everyone I'm in Maui. Mary, I don't have time for all your questions. Just tell everyone I'm going to Maui and I'll return their calls when I get back.

Dalton: Mr. Lawson, calm down.

Lawson: What? Are you still here? For god's sake, what do you want? I've got a plane to catch.

[Door closing]

Renfield: You seem very anxious to get out of town. Are you sure you aren't leaving too soon? You haven't killed Vincent Bates yet.

Lawson: Oh for god's sake, I didn't kill anyone, you [EXPLETIVE DELETED]. Someone is clearly trying to kill me. Dallas Gaines, Jack Sitersin, Cullen Krast? It's only a matter of time before they come for me. If you need me, I'll be at my timeshare in Arizona.

[Door opens]

[Door closes]

Renfield: That guy's a joke.
