This lawyer is not only dishonest but also rather unintelligent. What was he thinking, that you were not going to discover the truth? I find it a totally disgraceful attitude, absolutely inappropriate for someone who calls himself a lawyer.
I was not at that wedding, but I can confirm that what you were told by this JR is a pack of lies.
flw – You are right that this alleged conversation between opposing lawyers took place at a wedding but I certainly didn’t tell you, or post that information on this forum. I have to presume you are working for one or the other of them – in which case annonymous messages aren’t reassuring ❗ Who are you & what does JR stand for ❓ ❓ On what can you base your confirmation ❓
