I sued a large bank and their local counsel asked me to send him a written settlement offer, seemingly as interested in ending things as I was after a year of contentious litigation.
I feel like this is a trap to get me to violate some protocall. I have actually heard of demand letters from non-lawyers being considered blackmail or some other prohibited activity.
I represent myself as Plaintiff and am done with the fight that is taking up too much of my life but don't want to be stupid at the end. Is there anything to be wary of? From everything I know settlement is accomplished by conference or agreement.
