Customer Question

Dear ZDNLaw
I.I am sending letter.to my attorney Please edit if you could and advise what it make mo cense filing to(1 )or ( 2) (red)

I really can’t understand your position regarding my inquires to send defendant letter with new payment schedule. In your e-mail (June 27,2013) you replay , that this is unwise tactic and it is your right, in your professional opinion as my lawyer, detrimental what best to my interests. My question that you never answer what your professional suggestion to handle my case to represent my best interests. In your E-mail (July 8,20-13) you point out and I quote” I have no plan other than to keep pestering him for the money.”In my opinion send him new payment schedule it is also one way prodding him for the money. I have requested many times, over three months ,to send defendant letter with new payment schedule. Please send him immediately before July 11, 2013 or I will have no choice but filing complaint with (1) disciplinary consul for them to decide or(2) better to Santa Clara Bar association

2. Regarding your letter that you sent me Saturday, May 04,2013 and I am quote” “What I would do is send your attorney a request for a release of his lien on the remainder of the judgment and for a copy of the relevant portions of your file so that you can attempt to collect from the defendant for your self.”

Customer:

Thanks for your questions and good evening.Your prior expert is unavailable so please let me assist you.

Customer:

A sample letter here.

Customer:

Dear Mr. Jones,

Customer:

In your prior letter to me you asserted that in your professional opinion that my requested course of action is not prudent. Please outline for me the prudent course of action you are planning on taking to represent my best interests so that you have properly communicated the legal plan of action you are taking to me as your client as required by the rules of professional conduct. I am willing to cooperate with you and rely on your professional expertise as long as you communicate that legal plan to me and I am kept apprised of what is going on as you are required to do."

That will let him know you intend to cooperate, so he cannot withdraw citing you refuse to cooperate and want to take improper actions and it also puts him on the spot to tell you what he is going to do. The rules of professional conduct do mandate

Customer:

I am requesting that you send the debtor a new payment schedule to try and force resolution and payment of this matter.

Customer:

I am asking that you do this immediately.If you fail to do so I wll be forced to file a professional grievance as I feel you have not acted professionally to try and collect the debt involved.

Customer:

Alternatively I am asking for a release of your lien on the remainder of th e judgment and the immediate return of my case files so that I may proceed with collections in this matter.

Customer:

Sincerely Yours.

Customer:

Something like this, feel free to modify it here.

Dear Mr. Jones,

 

 

In your prior letter to me you asserted that in your professional opinion that my requested course of action is not prudent. Please outline for me the prudent course of action you are planning on taking to represent my best interests so that you have properly communicated the legal plan of action you are taking to me as your client as required by the rules of professional conduct.

 

I am willing to cooperate with you and rely on your professional expertise as long as you communicate that legal plan to me and I am kept apprised of what is going on as you are required to do.

 

It is my belief that further collection action is the proper means to collect this. am requesting that you send the debtor a new payment schedule to try and force resolution and payment of this matter.

:

I am asking that you do this immediately.If you fail to do so I will be forced to file a professional grievance as I feel you have not acted professionally to try and collect the debt involved.

 

Alternatively if you are not willing to attempt further collection activity I am asking for a release of your lien on the remainder of the judgment and the immediate return of my case files so that I may proceed with collections in this matter.

 

 

Sincerely Yours,

 

Your name
