Legal Question

Asked on: 7/17/13, 9:33 am

California Personal Injury - If we never received a substitution of attorney from new counsel, the statute of limitations was 8 days prior to the new counsel sending over a representation letter and designation to the insurance company. Since we did not hear from our client nor receive a substitution of attorney, we filed a complaint. The other attorney still has not sent us a substitution or filed a MC-050. The adjuster states that new attorney sent our office a fax 8 days prior to statute as substitution. We have no record of receiving this fax and nothing has been filed nor sent to us by mail. Is a fax substitution valid? Do they need to file the MC-050? How should I proceed??
