Thanks for your question and good afternoon.He is certifying that he has personal knowledge of the facts contained in the answer and any affirmative defenses..It is unusual because usually the lawyer lacks personal knowledge and has the client sign it.But it is certainly possible for him to sign it assuming he has personal knowledge of the facts in it as he has sworn to.You may want to review it if this if you are on the other side to see if he indeed has personal knowledge.It can be challenged on that basis in court.It has been my pleasure to assist you today.Please let me know if you have more follow up.Thanks again.

This communication does not establish an attorney client relationship here.Information provided is not legal advice. Rather it is simply general information.
The relationship with the lawyer has been filled with missed deadlines etc etc .. the complaint became the response ... The response is due today .. yesterday on a call I was told I would basically not get to review the response which was ridiculous but with about 18 hours to get a response done, I had no choice nor was I given one really.
I have no idea why he'd want to sign the response because his knowledge of the case in my opinion isnt what it should be after almost 6 months of procrastinating doing nothing ... I know it's very unusual for me not to see the response, how is the verified response sent .. I know it needs to be notarized ... how can it be sent ? How can't it be?
