Meister continued, “It’s a bogus accusation that reeks of opportunism and exploitation. The timing is beyond suspicious, and this whole thing stinks to high heaven. We are going to fight to clear his name, and we are going to succeed.” He is focused on building a case to clear his client’s name and is confident he will be able to do so.
