I need advice in Los Angeles. I was sent a letter from the

Customer Question

I need advice in Los Angeles. I was sent a letter from the California commissioner to be in court next week and I live in Texas. I just received this letter because I was in Calif visiting at the time the letter came to my mailbox. My brother hired a Mexican lady to take care of Mom 1 year before she died. I never met the lady but saw her twice when I visited Mom. Now she is claiming I owe money for wages unpaid which amounts to $20,000 which is bogus according to this paper I received in the maill. And because she sued my Moms estate after Mom passed claiming she fell when no one was there with her and won $25,000, she's trying for more money. My issue is that she claims I was her employer all the time she was with Mom. That's untrue. My brother hired her and I sent him cashier checks for clothes, hair cuts, pedicures, and nails to be painted. I loved my Mom dearly, and because I couldn't be there with her, I sent money to my brother to use for her care. Now this lady is saying she never was paid. I need an Lawyer to represent me in court for this,, so you are my only connection for representation because I don't have time to look for someone in Los Angeles. With the court date approaching I do need an extension and someone to appear for me for that court extension. Thank You
