As some of you know, I’m a paralegal at a law firm. It’s slow today, and I’m at work trying to make sense of a project one of the partners assigned me. Unfortunately, none of the people who might be able to provide further guidance are around on Christmas Eve, so here I am.
I’d appreciate being pointed in the right direction on the following:
Can an attorney withhold work product from a client because of unpaid bills? If so, under what circumstances?
How can a creditor report unpaid client bills to credit bureaus?
Citations would be appreciated. Thanks in advance. In the meantime, I will continue noodling around semi-aimlessly.
