Also suing for past due property taxes. i have vacated the property a few months ago. I was never served in person & found out about the case by accedant when i called the court regarding a ticket. My court date is tomorrow. I sent a letter to the attorny by fax yesterday telling him that Im welling to give the property back if they drop the case, they never responded. What can I say to the judge just so i can buy time to come up with some money to hire an attorney.

Go to court yourself, ask the judge to adjourn the date because you just found out, were not personally served and want to hire a lawyer. Should be easy. I see you are in Canton, I have an office in Livonia and can certainly help you locally here. Visit me at to discuss further. Thanks, Tim Klisz
