I am a pro se, what happens when you file a complaint without sending a demand letter.
Demand letters are not effective documents for any purpose. They are, in effect, notices to pay or be sued. They are not a precondition to bringing a law suit.
A demand letter is not required. The failure to send one is of no consequence.

NO ATTORNEY/CLIENT RELATIONSHIP IS CREATED BY PARTICIPATION ON THIS SITE. Legal advice ONLY comes after a complete review of the facts and relevant documents and an express written agreement of representation that forms an attorney-client relationship. Neither of these two events does or can occur in this forum. Answers to any Avvo question are rooted in general legal principles - NOT your state's or commonwealth’s specific laws or regulations. There is no implied or actual attorney-client relationship arising from this educational exchange. You should speak with an attorney licensed in your state or commonwealth, to whom you have provided all the facts, before you take steps (or refrain from taking steps) that may affect your legal rights. ATTORNEY ADVERTISING -- Prior Results Do Not Guarantee a Similar Outcome.
Nothing in the law requires that you send a demand letter before commencing an action. There may be strategic advantages to sending a demand letter, but again that letter is not required.
This answer is for general purposes only and does not establish an attorney-client relationship.
