You can hire an attorney to represent you.
NOT LEGAL ADVICE, NO ATTORNEY-CLIENT PRIVILEGE CREATED. DO NOT RELY SOLELY ON ANY ADVICE YOU RECEIVE FROM ME OR ANY OTHER ATTORNEY ON THIS FORUM. Actual legal advice comes after a complete review of the all facts and relevant documents. Neither of these two events can occur in this forum. Mr. Rafter is licensed to practice in the Commonwealth of Virginia and the US Federal Courts in Virginia. His answers to any Avvo question are rooted in general legal principles--NOT your specific state laws. There is no implied or actual attorney-client relationship arising from this exchange. You should speak with an attorney licensed in your state, to whom you have provided all the facts before you take steps that may impact your legal rights.

You cannot ignore this and need to retain experienced NY counsel to represent you or you will be making a serious mistake.

Your question is hard to follow.
If you have been served with a summons and complaint you are in a law suit and whether you stay or go is up to you. You can be represented for most matters by a lawyer
