A: Heck if I know. Please don't quote a single sentence out of a letter with no explanation of the full situation and expect some attorney to risk malpractice by giving an anonymous stranger legal advice on the internet. It getting good legal advice is important to you, you need to contact an attorney directly and make an appointment. Yes you will probably have to pay for the consultation but you can go to see an attorney for as little as $35 if you use the Lawyer referral program at the Oregon State Bar. Meet with the attorney, show them the letter and any other documents involved, and then get your answer.
