The loan is still unpaid - I was hit by a car while in a crosswalk - the loan was arranged by the personal injury attorney handling the case.He said I would not have to pay it back until I received funds from the accident case. The accident case has been on appeal for 3 years so the holder of the note is accumulating interest.
I offered to add the interest due and amortize the loan over 5 years at 10% but they turned it down and filed the law suite.
The attorney arranged the loan - private loan from his Brother. He refuses to give me the brothers contact information.
The note was a 1 year note - verbally the attorney stated I would not have to pay until I received funds from the accident. Case did not even get to trial in a year and it has now been almost 4 years. Attorney who arranged the loan has filed the law suite stating this note has been assigned to him - yet he refused to provide me contact info for the note holder and will not give me proof that he is the holder of the note. His complaint just has the original note attached no indication he owns the note? Is this even legal? Doesn't the note holder have to inform me if he assigns the note?
The attorney who filed the law suite against me has stated he has done so because I filed a legal mal practice case against him.... are you staying it is ok for him to refuse to give me contact information for the note holder when he was my attorney and wrote the note? isn't there something in the rules about not comunicating with your client?
