    Default Certified mail - do I ignore it?

    In a developing dispute regarding storage fees I just received a certified mail notice. Haven't picked the mail up yet. I contacted a lawyer and he told me not to pick it up, because it may be either a collections letter or even court serving - either way he said I shouldn't make it easier on the other party.

    So, this sounds like something I would decide on my own - but is this really the right approach? Should I ignore a certified mail and wait for someone to knock on my door (or not)?

    You're right, that it is something you should decide on your own. Some people prefer to sign for the certified letter as opposed to waiting for a process server. Others would just as soon put things off. One way or the other, you don't have to sign for a certified letter you do not want.
