This is attorney Bill assisting you today in your legal dilemma.

If there was no court order then refusal to pay would not put you in contempt of court.

From what you are describing, it is a contractual agreement to repay an amount to the attorney.

It is possible for you to stop paying and dispute payment based on illegality.

All illegal contracts are unenforceable in a court of law, so if the car is truly stolen, then the attorney would not have a successful action against you for breach of contract.
