Client, who is a homebound senior citizen, seeks assistance with a slip-and-fall matter. In November 2016, plaintiff started an action against the City of Philadelphia and two other defendants. The complaint states that in November 2014, plaintiff slipped and fell on the broken sidewalk at the end of an alleyway. In March 2017, the City of Philadelphia brought a joinder complaint against client and his wife, who are separated but are co-owners of a house on the alleyway. Client resides in this house and does not know the whereabouts of his wife. An attorney is needed to file a response on client’s behalf by September 5, 2017, as well as to defend him in this matter.

An arbitration hearing is scheduled for October 27, 2017, at 9:15am.
