Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Thank you for your question and thank you very kindly for requesting me to assist you further.To answer your question directly, sending a demand letter on your own such as from the 'president' or 'CEO' of the company is fine. The reason is because a demand letter by itself has no legal teeth or backing. However, because this is a corporation and is not a sole proprietorship, sending any legal documentation or filing suit MUST be done with an attorney. The reason is because your company is technically a separate legal entity and unless you yourself have a law degree and the ability to practice, your filing on behalf of the company would be considered a potential 'unauthorized practice of law'. That may get you fined and even criminally charged, and it would definitely dismiss the suit.I am sorry!
