Check with your state on whether or not the bill is past the statute of limitations.  If it has, write the lawyer and tell him or her that they need to go back to school.

It might depend on the reason for the bill.  If it is a legal judgement filed in court, and it hasn't been repaid (satisfied) it might be one that can be renewed until it is repaid.  Statute of limitations would not apply.  If the attorney is seeking a lien, it could be for a judgement and you had best find out what it is and take care of it quickly.
