Dear Customer,Thank you for using our forum. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you today.You can always contact the opposing counsel (the only exception to this is if you have retained your own attorney to represent you - if you have your own attorney, the opposing counsel is ethically prohibited from speaking with you directly without your attorney being present).If you are able to reach a settlement with the other party, make sure to get the agreement in writing, and it should include a "dismissal with prejudice" of the civil suit that was filed against you. The other attorney will be able to handle this.
