    You should be able to get a lawyer to at least draft a response letter for you. They will charge an hourly fee, most likely it will cost you around $200 to have a response letter drafted. Any responses received would be charged at the hourly rate for the lawyer's review. IF this goes to court, that's when the larger amounts start kicking in.

    Change up what you are asking for "services". Explain that you need a response letter and ask for the lawyer to handle correspondence. There are lawyers who will not charge a retainer fee. That's likely the cost you are being quoted. Ask if they charge a retainer fee. Look for one that works on a flat rate or hourly fee. That way you don't have to shovel out for all the expenses up front. And its pay as you go. It's as close to a payment plan as you may get.

    First: as much assistance as you have gotten on this forum PLEASE be careful about posting details of this case online. Anything you say regarding this case is discoverable (the other side can ask probing questions to find out who knows details of the case, etc.) and things you say can be twisted and used against you. It's really best not to say anything on public forums.

    Secondly, here is a list of Tennessee legal aid offices/pro bono attorneys: http://apps.americanbar.org/legalser...tennessee.html

    Good luck!

    I don't know much about laws, as I am not from the states. But like HorseMom1025 I have been watching the thread, and I have my fingers crossed for you and your case, and am looking forward to hearing a positive outcome!

    She has already received a complaint, meaning that she needs to serve and file a formal answer; a letter will not suffice at this point.

    Like a few others, I've been following this thread without commenting because I really don't have any advice to offer. I'm sorry you have to go through this and I hope that it gets cleared up sooner rather than later, I can only imagine how it must feel having this hanging over your head.

    Like many have stated previously, I've been watching this thread but have said nothing due to my inexperience and unfamiliarity with the subject.

    All I can say is I hope everything works out for you, and best of luck! We're all cheering for you!

    I'm also hoping everything works out. I don't see how he could possibly win with all the documentation you have.
    I'm not knowledgeable when it comes to law, but can you and the vet go to trial together?

    Either that or they got an attorney and were told NOT to post online about the case. That's certainly the advice we would give at the law firm I work for.
