I pressed charges on my ex for assault and putting my tires on flat he had a lawyer text my phone asking for my lawyer information because he put a lawsuit for false charges I am wondering can lawyers text if my ex has my address isn't something suppose to be mailed.
TO the extent that I understand your question, unless and until you are represented by your own lawyer, your ex's attorney may contact you -- but you do not have to take his calls or speak to him. In fact, I strongly suggest that you not speak to him without your own lawyer present. Be careful. I do not know whether MS has SLAPP statutes, but if it does and he is suing you for reporting the assault to the police, you should be protected. Regardless, it sounds from the little you revealed that you need an attorney.
If you are represented by your own attorney, then his attorney is not allowed to contact you in any way and must direct all communications through your attorney. Otherwise, he can contact you in any reasonable manner.
Seek your own attorney to assist and handle all future communications.
Answer is for informational purposes only and does not create an attorney-client relationship.
If you get a lawyer, his lawyer will have to contact yours. Avvo has a great lawyer finder tool to locate an attorney close to your home. Good luck.
Its perfectly fine. There are rules about attorneys talking to parties without lawyers, and rules about talking to parties without their lawyers present. He's asking you because he's trying to determine who he should be speaking to - you or a lawyer. The reason he's sending it by text is he wants to make sure there's a written record that he didn't violate the rule.
Since you are not represented he may contact you. As stated in the prior question, please contact an attorney. A text is not the same as a summons and it sounds as though you need counsel
In no way am I offering you legal advice, and in no way has my comment created an attorney-client relationship. You are not to rely upon my note above in any way, but instead need to sit down with counsel and share all relevant facts before receiving fully-informed legal advice.
I agree with the comments above indicating that the attorney is free to contact if you are not represented by counsel. You may want to seriously consider seeking a lawyer to protect your interests as most often a non-lawyer will be at a disadvantage in a pending lawsuit where the opposing party is represented by legal counsel.
