Check with your State's Statute of Limitations, chances are it's way past the date they can bring a suit against you.

And this 'attorney' may instead be a "junk debt buyer" who is trying to collect.  But do check the SOL first because most states have a 4-6 year limit, and this debt seems to have exceeded that limit.
