Thank you for your patience and thank you for using Just Answer. I want to provide you the best service I can. Please feel free to ask any follow up questions you have.
I am an attorney with 30 years of experience; I hope to provide you information that will help you in resolving your question.
Your question: "Why doesn't my lawyer want to agree with the settlement?" Can not be answered based on the information that you have provided and I can not speculate on her motives. BUT she works for you and if she will not work with you to prepare the settlement agreement you may need to seek new counsel.
Generally, I am reluctant to second guess the attorney on the ground handling the case. Perhaps she believes you can get a better result by following through on the litigation.
BUT this is a business decision and a personal decision for you to make. Personally, I prefer to work out creative win-win solutions that enable me to control the outcome rather than rely of the decision of a third party (judge). So if you believe that this decision works for you then you have the absolute right to insist on the settlement.
Don't forget, once you settle the matter the property will be completely yours. If it becomes necessary to pursue eviction again you will be free to pursue that without the partnership/ownership issue being in the way.
I hope the information I provide is useful to you. I want you to be comfortable and satisfied with my attempt to assist you. Please, if you have ANY follow up questions, feel free to ask. Please note that I am generally unavailable Friday evening through Sunday.
Please do not forget to give me a positive rating. It adds nothing to your costs but it helps me greatly. Thank you.
If you are dissatisfied with my response PLEASE let me know before giving me a negative review so that I may try to be of better assistance. Or if you prefer, let me know and I can “Opt Out” and your question can be re-posted without additional cost to you. I will be fair to you and only ask the same from you.
