Bankruptcy Law Questions? Ask a Bankruptcy Lawyer Now.
I will be happy to assist you. Are you in foreclosure or bankruptcy currently?
I would send a written request to your attorney. Let him know you have been trying to contact him to take care of this issue, and he has not returned your calls. Let him know that this is unacceptable and you would like a response. You can call the State bar and file a complaint, a rather drastic measure, but one of the biggest complaints against attorney's is their lack of returning phone calls, or communication with the client. It is unacceptable, you are paying for their legal services and they should respond. If that doesn't work you can terminate your attorney and seek a new one, or go pro se and ask the Trustee to order the mortgage company to take the surplus and apply it yourself.
