Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
You're right that there's no legal reason a person would do this. Instead, it is likely that the person has no lawyer and is just telling you that he does as a bluff to force something on you or to intimidate you. Thus, you likely can tell this person to have his lawyer contact you and you'll arrange turning over the papers.
I can't say if his phantom lawyer shows instability or not......it could just be a bluff in hopes to keep you at bay or on your heels. However, the fastest way to determine this is to have your lawyer set a status conference hearing or some other hearing and see if this person or his lawyer shows up......and that should show you what you're dealing with.
No problem and thanks for your question. If you need anything further, please let me know. Also, please take time to positively rate our conversation so I may receive credit for assisting. Thanks again!
