I struck a deal with my attorney to settle for 40% of his outstanding bill. He agreed in writing via email. He did not put a time frame on the email. 6 months later I paid the payment to him. He turned me into collections in the mean time, less than 30 days prior to me making payment. The collection agency is sighting they rescinded the offer (without notification), and are pursuing the balance in a Washington State court. My question is: In the State of Washington, can a collection agency rescind an offer made in writing without written notification to the consumer? The judge in this case is scratching his head. Can anyone help me. If I am in the right, I need legal documentation to back me, so please, point me in the right direction.
