I received an invoice yesterday from my brother for incurred costs and legal bills stating I had a negative influence on a supposed verbal contract he made with my father who passed away one month later when the agreement was made. The executor who handled my father's estate denied any acknowledgement of this deal because it was not written which dates back to November of 2008. The letter says I have 7 days from the date of the letter to pay the bill. Even if I was to pay the bill don't I have 30 days? I would like to respond by directing him back to the executor as I had no involvement with this agreement. Do I need to take this to a lawyer?
