This concerns attorney malpractice:
I hired an attorney and he filed a Rule 11 Agreement without my consent.
I filed a Small Claims
Action against him for breach of contract
I wrote the incorrect amount of money down on the filing. ($11,000.00 instead of $5500.00)
Judge Raleigh dismissed the case without prejudice.
I was told here by JustAnswer I could refile the case to Small Claims Court again with the correct amount.
The Attorney filed a motion for incorrect jurisdiction. The matter had already been ruled upon. The Judge dismissed the case with prejudice. The attorney then counter sued me for his time, $500.00. I have 14 days to appeal.
I now appeal in County Court.
If I appeal what steps do I need to do?
If I request a jury trial
, does this matter start from scratch again or what?
Rules of evidence will apply. In SC Action I can bring the emails I received and sent. Will I need to Motion for Discovery so I can get the emails that were sent between us. Or can I submit the same emails that would have been used in Small Claims Court.
