I don't see how this could be a template for me, it's more of a case study, which could possibly have some anecdotal value; however, I need specific information about filing a motion to reinstate my case in LA county. I also wanted to know about what steps I can take to begin any claims I have for the $5,000 legal fees I paid to legal counsel, now disbarred.
Finally, I see that you offer a trial period of one week to ask questions, which I would have found very helpful since I've never used this site before, but that was not even mentioned until after I gave my credit card #XXXXX I really don't feel that the 1 link I was sent, or the way this process is handled, could possibly be valued at $30.
Ok, I will list the information that I would need to get from you, so please let me know asap if this is the kind of info you can give me:
if I'm allowed to refile for Chapter 13 in LA county, or is it possible to file a motion for my case that was dismissed to be reinstated?
What recourse do I have to recover the $5,000 fee I paid to my bankruptcy attorney, who has been disbarred. They never served my creditors properly, which led to my ch. 13 being dismissed.
What procedures for a loan modification are available to me, so I can pursue that as well as trying for the bankruptcy protection.
Yes, I would like to be able to use this service, I just want to make sure that I'll be able to get specific info when I need it, not just reference leads or general legal terms.
That's no problem, I appreciate whatever procedural help you can offer for the concerns that I listed...thank you.
