Thread: "the next thing you will hear from me will come from my lawyers"

  1. #1

    Default "the next thing you will hear from me will come from my lawyers"

    What do we make out with statement like this ("the next thing you will hear from me will come from my lawyers") appearing more and more frequent in posts @CS Forums? Are all these bluffs or r u telling me that these ppl are serious about it?
    And from my observation, these ppl are more often than not, professional and/or rich members. Is there really a need to give out such threats, in the first place?
    And the irony of this is that the threat usually came after statement like "you are not worth it."
    .... so logically speaking if that guy is not worth a dime, then why is there a need to get a lawyer to engage him?
    always the Light, .... always.

    sounds like the tyranny of money

    learn to insult without insulting, scold without scolding, slap without using your hand. such is the online survival tactic that will see you through CS safely

    Hi Canonised,

    agree with ortega, if they do have a case, they would already have contacted their lawyers instead of resorting to pointless threats. Sticks and stones......

    That statement is used commonly to intimidate people who don't know better. Having a lawyer on retainer is one thing, but justice is blind and is all about submiting proof. If they don't have a case, there is nothing they can do even if they have 100 lawyers.

    So my response to that is: If they have a case, make it. If not, please bugger off

    Of course, it is always up individuals to carry out their transactions with integrity to avoid conflicts in the first place.

    My 2 cents.

    Lawyer's fees is about $500 per hour. a case can drags for looooong time. can you afford their fees? is it worth to spent the money for small issues? Siao.

    Just my 2 cent... dont sue me, I cant afford to engage a lawyer to defend me.

    Bro, I think you've missed out something...DeSwitch mentioned $500 per hour and good wedding photographer only $2-3K one day ...some more must climb up and down leh...I believe lawyers don't have to do that and sitting comfortably in the air-con room...
