What you like to know?

Customer:

Hello Chris,

Customer:

I have been harrassed by an attorney for few yrs, after they had closed my banking account, and took my tax returns couple yrs ago.. So I finally was able to do my bankruptcy couple yrs ago.. I made sure that I called the attorney that harrassed me got the amount that I owed, and made sure they were on it, well after 2yrs I've been cleared, I decided to get a loan consalidation but found out there's a lien on my truck.. so I went to find out who it was, come to find out it the same lawyers office, I had called them after my bankruptcy cause they sent me another letter so I told them about the bankruptcy, and they said they never got the letter saying that,

Customer:

I gave them the case number, they took it, but now they have a lien and said to get the lien off I have to pay them $1000.00 can they do that?

Customer:

just to give you an idea, when they frozed my checking account, the took all the money that was in there about $2000.00, than my tax return was about $4000.00.. They made me suffer, I couldn't do much for my 2 girls, provide food, and pay my bills talk about being over stressed..

Hi, my name isXXXXX'm a bankruptcy attorney with many years experience.

As I understand your question, you hired a bankruptcy attorney who's law firm was already handling a case against you for collection of a debt. If that is the case, he/she had a clear conflict of interest and should not have taken your case.

It is likely that your bankruptcy attorney could have filed a motion under Section 522 of the Bankruptcy Code to avoid the lien on your vehicle. The Code allows avoidance of a judgment lien to the extent it impairs any exemptions allowed to you under bankruptcy law.

I recommend that you contact the attorney who handled your bankruptcy. Insist that he reopen your bankruptcy case and file a motion to avoid the lien. If in fact he is with the same firm that was handling the case against you and he is unwilling to deal with this issue, I recommend that you contact the state bar association for the state you live in. You may want to consider filing a complaint with the bar association. They would investigate your complaint and take any appropriate action.

I hope this helps. I would appreciate you leaving positive feedback with the JustAnswer website.

Best of luck.
