A Conditional Acceptance is same as a “Counter-Offer” which has the legal effect of rejecting the offeree’s offer.” – Black Law Dictionary
When you receive a bill, default notice, order to pay, judgment, summons, indictment, red light camera ticket, phone call, statement by a judge, attorney, or knock on the front door… they are all “offers”. You can legally reject their offer by using a Conditional Acceptance.
In the movie “My Cousin Vinny”, we have a classic example of a Conditional Acceptance or Counter-Offer, during the negotiation of a (oral) contract over $200 overdue and owed to a one Vincent Laguidia Gambini (who is known as “Vinny”).
Review the video, or read the dialogue below, to refresh your memory about this incident. You can see contract law and conditional acceptance in action right here. Watching this video clip will help a novice to remember that everything is Contract Law and you can always re-negotiate as you go.
Conditional Acceptance / Counteroffer Scene from the Movie My Cousin Vinny:
Vinny: J.T, I believe you and Lisa played a game of pool for two-hundred dollars which she won? I’m here to collect.
J.T.: How ’bout if I just kick your ass.
Vinny: Oh a counter-offer. That’s what we lawyers (I’m a lawyer), we lawyers call that a counter-offer. Let me see…this is a tough decision your giving me here. Get my ass kicked or collect two-hundred dollars. Hmm…. what’d ya think (turns to his fiance)? I could use a good ass kicking, I’ll be very honest with you (points to J.T.). hmmm….(thinks for a bit)…..nah, I think I’ll just go with the two-hundred (smiles).
(laughing in background from observers)
J.T.: Over my dead body.
Vinny: You like to re-negotiate as you go along, huh? OK, then here’s *my counter-offer*: (pauses)… Do I have to kill you? What if I was just to kick the ever-loving sh*t out of you?
J.T.: In your dreams!
Vinny: Oh no no no no. In reality: If I was to kick the sh*t out of ya, do I get the money??
J.T.: (looks confused, pauses) If *you* kick the sh*t out of me?
J.T.: Yea; then you get the money (smiles with a smerk).
Vinny: (turns to an observer playing pool with neck brace): What happened rear-ended?
Pool player: No I fell.
Vinny: Oh. OK, let’s see if we agree on the terms. The choice now, is, I get my ass kicked, *or* option “B”, I kick your ass and collect the two-hundred. (pauses to think) I’m going with option B, kicking your ass and collecting two-hundred dollars. (laughts)
J.T.: We goin fight now?
Vinny: Yea, first let me see the money.
J.T.: I have the money.
Vinny: Alright, let me see it show it to me.
J.T.: I can get it.
Vinny: You can get it?! OK, get it, then we’ll fight.
So let’s now go over the legal explanation of a Conditional Acceptance –
When you are contracting, you can respond in either one of four ways:
1) Full Acceptance
2) Conditional Acceptance (Counter-offer)
3) Remain Silent
4) Argue/Discuss/Fight/Make Statements
With the first two categories you remain “In Honor” with the offeree and with the last two options you put yourself “In Dishonor”.
When you stay In Honor you set yourself up to follow Gods law instead of being bound by Mans law. You will find yourself being able to handle your own affairs often without needs to seek help from an attorney or anybody else for that matter. You will become empowered knowing that you can nullify or counter-offer any offer – letter, phone call, or in-person visit with any official or officers.
In the Bible at Matthew 5:25 it tells us: “Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison.”, and another translation says it as “Settle matters quickly with your adversary who is taking you to court. Do it while you are still with him on the way, or he may hand you over to the judge, and the judge may hand you over to the officer, and you may be thrown into prison.”
Never here does it say to argue, fight, or plead your case. In order to win you must “Conditionally Accept” and stay In Honor.
Stay tuned, there will be more videos on this. You can watch one Conditional Acceptance Video Success that was posted in our blogroll, here; and a Conditional Acceptance mantra for Police & Courts here.
And there will surely be many many more so stay tuned!
We are hoping that this can teach you how to successfully write your own Conditional Acceptance letters, so as to *not be arguing* or disputing.

Conditional Acceptance / Counteroffer is a way of responding will put you on top and give you the power back to re-contract. If you are not a subject or slave to the other person/entity trying to contract with you, you can maintain your sovereignty by responding with a conditional acceptance.
