Lawyer: INFOLAWYER, Attorney replied 3 months ago
Normally one examines all possible claims before signing a settlement agreement. Courts will not vacate absent apparent mistake and where parties didn’t intend to include newly discovered claims.

Actually this is a rip-off! This is why I contacted your site

We cannot represent customers. If seeking representation need to hire local private counsel. martindale.com and findlaw.com are both excellent lookup directories. Both highly rated. Both used by lawyers. Easy to search and find local options.If you have a follow up, just reply and ask me!
