I received 4 different civil demands (150.00/each) demanding that I pay within 25 days from the date of the letter. I have read mixed responses on this topic. Some say ignore the demands, others say pay it. I already have a pending court date for the criminal incident. This was with a major department store. Should I just ignore them or call and attempt to negotiate lower monthly payments? It states at the bottom of the letters that "this is a virtual law office" and that I can make payment to legalpaymentcenter.com. There is absolutely no way I can afford to pay it all at one time. I realize I screwed up and made a huge mistake.
Thank you for your time.I wanted to add that this lawyer is located in MA and I am guessing (after some extensive research) that the "virtual office" is located in Raleigh, NC therefore making it look like this lawyer is in NC. The payment center is located in CA. ????
