What is a demand letter? I’m Aaron Hall, a business attorney in Minnesota. I just left Minnesota District Court in Hennepin County. The judge issued an award of over $100,00. In this case, it all started with a demand letter. That was simply a letter that I wrote on behalf of my client, a business, to another business. And it demanded that they comply with the law. The business refused to comply with the law and in fact, as time went on, we found other violations. We commenced a lawsuit, proceeded to bring the entire case to the court, and today, in a very important court hearing, the judge notified us from the bench that the judge would be ruling in our favor, and the judgment would exceed $100,000. It’s a six-figure amount. This is significant because the other side failed to take seriously a demand letter.
So what’s the takeaway here? Make sure you pay attention to a demand letter, hire an attorney who can help you respond to it, and try to work out your issues before they get to court.
