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? :dunno:
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? :think:

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...:bsmilie:
