Ask a Business Lawyer. Get Business Law Questions Answered ASAP.
Please answer my question - can I join the second guy into my counter claim against the first guy who filed against me? and if so, how do I do that? OR do I need to file a whole separate suit against the two of them OR do I amend my answer to the first guy to include a counter claim to go after him and sue the second guy separately in a new suit?
also does this service provide lawyer referrals since I need a lawyer before May 27 for the original case.
