Customer Question
I am being sued...

I am being sued for dismissing a vehicle purchase several years ago. Her attorney has since filed in court a motion to withdraw as counsel. I'm a retired veteran with limited funds. I don't know what to say to the judge. Can you please help me?

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

Florida twentieth judicial circuit, lee county

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?

I had an attorney, but couldn't afford her.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Yes!! Plaintiff has filed an extension twice. She told the court she was out of the country.

Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to help if I can. However, I am unclear about the situation (please remember that I do not have independent knowledge of your problem, and know only what you tell me here). Accordingly, can you please provide a little more background information?

For example, what does "sued for dismissing a vehicle purchase" mean?

Also, are you asking how to respond to the motion to withdraw filed by the other party's attorney?

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
