my named was signed as a co-signer on a student loan. I am being sued for this loan, which was taken in 2 parts. I went to Arbitration for the first loan and received the award. Now they are suing me for breaking a contract and it will be going to trial. Am I allowed to bring up the first part of the case, and its' outcome?
You have not provided enough information. I do not understand what contract you are alleged to have breached if you previously prevailed. You should speak with a local attorney.
Even though Avvo makes it clear to consumers that attorney answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship, it must be clear that any answers are based on limited information and particular circumstances may influence any direct advice. Any information is given strictly for guidance to seek independent legal advice.
Our Rating is calculated using information the lawyer has included on their profile in addition to the information we collect from state bar associations and other organizations that license legal professionals. Attorneys who claim their profiles and provide Avvo with more information tend to have a higher rating than those who do not.
