Am selfemployed. money owed by my client.

If this genuinely a without prejudice offer during the course of normal civil litigation then it cannot be referred to in court at all in this or other cases unless save for very limited exceptions.

Not all documents purporting to be without prejudice are actually without prejudice but you seem to be describing a genuine attempt to settle.

I'm very sorry if this is bad news.

Can I help further?
