An elderly relative with help from greedy relatives is suing me over a real estate issue.It was clear to the other side they were loosing and the attorney for the one suing asked for a break. The elder's attorney told her to go sit with dishonest relatives. He then asked my attorney to talk in a private room. According to my attorney (This was in his office) that If we did not offer a settlement the Elder would claim she was ill and having a heart attack. I know this relative well and know she fakes illness to try to get what she wants. My attorney said he would not take that offer as it was not an offer it was (and i forgot the word) but to me it seems blackmail or fraud or extortion etc.. But I am not a legal minded person I just figure this has to be very wrong. My attorney was visibly shaken by this and said the other attorney most likely did this type thing before. My attorney said he was very worried about someone real or facking having emergency medical in his office in this manner. My attorney said he told the other sides attorney after several threats to call an ambulance OR get back to the deposition. They called the Ambulance and made a big ruckus. I was told the others had made threatening statements thus was offered an escort to my car. NOW my attorney says for the first time in the 2 years we may lose if the other side keeps up this act. My attorney asked me to start writing up offers. in short give them money when it is clear they owe me a great deal. I do not feel this is right. I THINK my attorney has never dealt with this type of behavior and does not know how to. He is a good attorney but this clearly scared him. Seems like it is against the law for the other attorney to do this threat. If I can find an attorney to take the case who knows how to deal with this behavior. Is it ileagal what they did?? Can someone get a warrent then record in secreet what this attorney says and does or something??
