Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Thank you for using JustAnswer. I am researching your issue and will respond shortly.
So long as you did not sign an agreement that personally obligated yourself, but rather only your company, this attorney almost certainly would not have any case against you. The attorney would only have a case based on contract, and if the contract that he had was solely with the company, there would be no more case. Now if you personally guaranteed payment as well as the company having liability, then that would be a different matter.
(in that second situation, he could sue, as there would be two entities that he could go after). But again, if you only signed as a representative of the company and not personally obligating himself, he would not have a case, as the only entity that was legally obligated to pay would be closed.
