Yes, i know what the atty told me, this lawsuit is not something i took lightely. I asked him about the court date and he told me not to worry about it and that he got an extention. The next thing i know i get a letter saying i never showed up to court. This is why it is such a big deal, if he would have let me know that i needed to go to court becuase he didn't get an extention I would have gone. I wouldn't have just put off going to court when being sued for such a large amount(atleast in proportion to my income). The main problem is that the atty rarely returned my calls and when he did he simply told me "not to worry about it" and that "he would take care of it. I have phone bills showing how many times i tried calling him to no avail.garrula lingua said:It's very embarrassing for an atty to be sued in small claims.
It just has the appearance of impropriety, even if the atty is correct.
Is it possible you misunderstood what the atty promised to do ?
I'd be pretty furious if I were sued unfairly. ...
Furious attys are nasty animals.
