Attorney's intimidation during mediation session ?
===================================

This happened in Maryland:

I filed a law suit without attorney in small claims. The defendant has an attorney. I went to trial Judge offered a mediation with conflict resolution team. Defendant's attorney tried to push low ball offer with intimidation. He said that he will not loose against unrepresented plaintiff (me personally without attorney). If he loose, he will appeal to circuit court and drag the suit further. It will make me start my law suit ground up. The mediator did not address/challenge this threat. I did not like such threat and choose to present my case to Judge instead of mediation. Due to this mediation session, my case was postponed by Judge to another date. I need to come again with expert witness. I need to pay him twice now.


Here are some questions.

1) Does such Attorney's intimidation allowed in mediation?

2) Do I have an option to have a session without defendant's attorney?

3) Do I able to raise this Attorney's intimidation to Judge in my trial?

4) If I get a ruling in my favor, will I able ask judge to stop dragging by defendant attorney's appeal?


Thanks for sharing.

These are questions only an attorney can answer. I would highly recommend you hire one, or try to see if some Legal Aid services in your county can help answer specific questions if you can't afford to hire one.

Only a fool has himself as a client. Get a lawyer.





Sorry to break it to you but the lawyer was doing his job and yes that is to "intimidate you".........and it worked.

There is a good reason there is no such thing as internet lawyers.

Legal issues aside, maybe take a stronger stand for yourself. You don't have to let others push you around. Get a lawyer, and don't be afraid to tell someone to kick rocks.

hire a lawyer or drop your suit. If it's small claims court, good luck finding an interested attorney.

Don't be a doormat. Being intimidated is being a doormat.
