anyone got thoughts on putting a cc: at the end of a letter with an attorneys name who you will in the future consult with but have not yet?

any issues with this if you actually do intend to give them the letter?

I personally wouldn't do it.

It seems like there is a risk, even a remote one, and very little, if any, payoff.

the payoff i think would be actually very substantial in this situation because the party i am sending the letter to is very adverse to litigation and that is basically the only piece of leverage I have

what is the risk?

My state has misrepresentation penalties for the bar. Slim chance they would hear about it, but still not worth it imo. Unless you're not a bar licensed attorney, but I thought you were.

I am...i guess the title "fake cc" isnt entirely accurate...i actually will present the letter to an attorney, its just not the case that I am engaged with the attorney at the time the letter is sent...i guess the question is, is that misrepresentation

As an officer of the court, I would not put a fake cc on a letter.

Put a CC to the Booty Warrior instead. They may be a little wary of litigation, but I assure you they're very wary of sodomy.

 It's not fake if you actually do it.
