Kuntz,908 P.2d 1110 (Colo. 1996); People v. Jamrozek, 914 P.2d 350 (Colo.1996); People v. Sigley, 917 P.2d 1253 (Colo.1996); People v. Crews, 901 P.2d 472 (Colo.1995); and People v. Tucker, 904 P.2d 1321 (Colo. 1995). It is my understanding that you meeting with me to turn over the file and telling me what it contains is not representing me, it is fulfilling your duty under the CO laws to surrender the files to me. I do not want any advice that could be deemed representation, only explanations, of what it contains. I believe the law entitles me to my files as I cannot be sure that all information you state was copied/forwarded to me was ever received on the case. Respectfully XXXXX XXXXX I expect appointment to receive my complete case file? Regards,Dr. G.. G......
Gil,I will have to pull your file out of storage and prepare it to give to you. Given my current schedule, I would like to have two weeks to get it together. It is a very large file and will take some time to sort through.Let me know if this works for you.thanks,J..........
This is by far the best response I've ever had regarding a legal matter; thank you your response was invaluable.
How do I insure to get you as I have more questions concerning legal matters?
