Can a lawyer licensed to practice in one state send demand letters to another state?
As a New York lawyer representing a New York client, I have no problem sending a letter to an out-of-state potential defendant asserting my client's claim.See question
Also can you withdrawal or does the money have to be spent and on what?
I enjoyed Mr. Bollinger's soccer analogy! The way you drafted the question suggests that you intend may be trying to work the system. Have a good reason, such as daily expenses, itemized and deal in good faith.See question
does this mean judgement can be vacated or can you petition to have this vacated
I agree with Mr. Russo, but want to clarify. While the record may exist for an indeterminate time, a judgment in most states is limited as to enforceability. In New York, where I practice, it's 10 years and renewable for another 10 years. But states differ. You may also have defenses and therefore cause to vacate the judgment, such as improper service of process (you never received notice of the initial lawsuit). It's worth your time to consult with a Florida attorney. Best of luck to you.See question
I am legally obligated to pay this? i didnt pay when i left but he will send me a bill. i dont know how to prove this as it was a verbal agreement. i would not have gone to see him if he said it was 350.00 his hourly rate.
This is a difficult question to address, because many times I've met with a new client and it goes way over the free 15 minute consult. After you get the bill, write the attorney and recite the facts and ask him to reconsider his position.See question
