for socrateaser only.: Hi. I have gotten great answers from you in the past. My former family law attorney has sued me for nonpayment and I have made a cross complaint for mal practice. He claims that the mal practice statue of limitation has run since the date he was withdrawl from the case. my claim is it is still running since I received a complete billing statement of his in his complaint. The judge was leading towards not accepting my answer saying the fact the bills show they were sent out is sufficient enough to prove you had the information at the time but you didn't do anything about it. I am able to show that the bills went to my old address and that is how I did not receive them. However, is this a good argument? was it my responsibility to provide my new address to him or just showing I did not receive the bills would be sufficient enough? if you have any other feed back I would appreciate it too. thank you.
