Form of Process - Warning to Debtor
Inquiry has been made as to whether it is proper for an
attorney to write to a client's debtor demanding payment of a sum
alleged to be due his client and enclosing with the letter a copy
of a summons and complaint which the attorney says will be filed if
payment is not made within five days.
In our opinion such procedure is in bad taste and professionally improper. Furthermore, a person not conversant with legal papers might be led to believe that the form enclosed was a
process in an action and something more than a mere demand for payment. Accordingly, the sending of a form of summons and complaint is disapproved.
