In a non-litigation context, where plaintiff was not represented by counsel and did not necessarily view a law firm or its client as an adversary, but merely a party that it claimed owed it some money, the plaintiff was not, as a matter of law, unjustified in relying, without further investigation, on factual representations made to it in the law firm’s letter attempting to exonerate its client.  Wilhelm v. Pray, Price, Williams & Russell (1986) 186 Cal.App.3d 1324 is distinguishable as in that case a plaintiff who was represented by counsel in litigation claimed to have relied on the opposing counsel’s statements.
