Answer will follow in the pane below in a short while….
1. The law firm appears to be legit as the attorneys are : Battaglino, Richard W. (Attorney Bar Number:
587931) and Zakheim, Scott Charles (Attorney Bar #397180) and they are showing to be licensed by the FL Bar.
2. Not sue what you mean by this: " is this complete a room offer"??
3. You can find out if there is a case filed against you in Miami Superior Court by typing in your name at this link.
4. You can find out if there is case filed against you in Forsyth at this link by typing in your name.
NOTE THAT SEARCHING FOR A CASE USING THE CASE NUMBER ***** WORKS AS THEY DO NOT TELL YOU THE FORMAT FOR INPUTTING THE CASE NUMBER ***** THUS THE SYSTEM DOES NOT OFTEN RECOGNIZE IT.
As far as why the balance increased; there is no way to know without asking the law firm to explain; preferably in writing. If they fail to do so, then you could file a declaratory judgment action to get the court to rule on the issue; but it is probably not practical for the $480.00 that is at stake. Rather it would be better to nail down a final settlement agreement and date in writing and pay them and get a release signed so that the matter is concluded.
Please assign a feedback rating so JA will compensate me for my time and we can close out this question. Thank you.
