To clear something up, on #4 you sent, you have it mixed up a little -prob my bad. They might have assumed I have a lawyer representing me by the fact I filed suit, but no mention of a lawyer was written down or has been mentioned. And I don't have one yet.
If I contact them, without a law firm representing me (which is the case), but as you mentioned, tell him I have actually 2 firms who want to take my case, will it still seem like a position of weakness. After all, my understanding from all legal advice I can muster, it will cost them much, much more than 20k if it gets to court, probably 60 to 100k. (and I know I have to give the lawyers there cut) and they lose money that way, though it's money in their attorneys pockets. It's a TBI case. Should I ask for $50k to try to settle at $40k. Just a little off your hypothetical above. Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I did try to reach Tower Grove Lawyer as I spent hundreds of dollars with him earlier on in this case, but can't seem to reach him now. Your response seems very good given the lack of info you have been given.
