I am representing myself. I lost a case and a judgement has been filed. The winning attorney, agreed to accept a lower offer, and would only accept a payment on the date he specified, we said we could not do it on that date. We agreed to pay it a day earlier and he refused. So now he is charging us the judgement amount, plus his time for talking to us, plus time in daily interest. He is playing games, saying he would not give a "satisfaction of judgement" unless I paid all amounts, and he will not give us the amount. We are thinking about paying the court instead, but believe he will add more money onto the bill, since he will have to deal with the court. Previously, the attorney double billed us, but the judge upheld it. So my questions:
1) what is the best way to proceed, to save us the most money? Pay the court, or pay the attorney?
2) What releases do I need besides a satisfaction of judgement?
3) The judge did not catch the double billing by the attorney. To file another motion, it will cost us more money, since I will have to pay the winning attorney's time for his review of my motion. Is there anyway I can bring this to the court's attention, without incurring more fees? Can I use small claims
against the prevailing attorney who double charged us?
Thanks in advance for your time.
