A woman lawyer I know started getting very strange letters (weird, incoherent) from a person she had never met. The letters apparently were an attempt to discuss a case she had never heard of and referred to people she had never heard of. What should she do? Well …..at least she has options:
I. Do not respond initially;
II. Send letter saying that she does not represent anybody and will not represent anybody and suggesting the sender call the local bar association;
III. Write “REFUSED” on subsequent letters (if you can) and return to sender
IV. Do not open subsequent letters
Call police if you feel threatened or if the letters you have read appear to threaten some one or some thing.
