RE: Clark v. Needham
In the Circuit Court of Maryland for Baltimore City
Case No: 24-C-05-002797

Dear Mr. Weber:

Please be advised that this firm has been retained to represent Eartie Clark with regard to injuries she sustained when involved in an automobile accident on October 10, 2004 at the intersection of Painters Mill and McDonough Roads in Baltimore County, Maryland

As such, we need a traffic light sequence report for the intersection in question. I would also request that you provide me with the name of an employee who would be able to provide additional information and answer questions regarding the sequence report. I have enclosed a copy of the accident investigation report, for your reference. I have also enclosed a self addressed, stamped envelope for your convenience in returning the requested information.

Thank you in advanced for your anticipated prompt attention to this matter. Should you have any questions or concerns, or should you require additional information, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Very truly yours,
Laura G. Zois
