Greetings. First, what does she want? Is it worth taking one more step or one more action without having a complete settlement offer from her? If she has not provided one, then make no more efforts. If you have not provided one, then make one!
If she has provided a settlement offer, make sure that you have a comprehensive response already made. Figure out where the “tennis ball” is, point it out to everyone (all attorneys and the parties), and make sure it gets back over the net.
Finally, what the heck does “not rattling the cage” have to do with coming to a settlement. No one should spend their life in limbo. Limbo benefits only the attorneys (generally). Thank you.
