Customer Question
I'm being sued by...

I'm being sued by my mother in a Civil case which was filed in Los Alamos, NM and I live in Georgia. I need help to answer the subpoena in 15 days from the date of May 18,2018 and 30 days from May 28, 2018 to answer the summons. Can you please help me?

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

I live in Georgia however the law suit was filed in Los Alamos District court, county of Los Alamos, state of New Mexico and the Ga attorney told me I need a lawyer from New Mexico

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

None yet, I do not know how or I do not have an attorney that can file a response

I'm sorry to hear that;

this is correct- that the attorney must be licensed in the state where the suit is pending.

Here is a link to the NM bar association attorney referral page:

https://www.nmbar.org/Nmstatebar/For_Members/LRS.aspx

You can also check www.martindale.com which many professionals use to locate an attorney.

I called the New Mexico bar of association and I had no luck finding an attorney you can handle a Civil Case. Can you help me find one?
Lawyer: legalgems, Lawyer replied 2 months ago

Unfortunately I am not able to provide specific legal referrals.

You can check the www.martindale.com site as they list attorneys by location/areas of practice.

Normally the bar will provide a list of attorneys in your county.

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.
