I was discharged from a Bankruptcy (chpt 7) in December 2010. Now, I have been issued a Subpoena from the Department of Justice for the following: MOTION OF THE UNITED STATES TRUSTEE
FOR REVIEW OF ATTORNEY'S FEES AND DISGORGEMENT OF FEES UNDER 11 U.S.C. 329 AND FOR SANCTIONS UNDER 11 U.S.C. 105 AND MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT
I have asked the attorney who represented me in my bankruptcy to give me something in writing that would detail me not being charged any monies for her appearance for my Deposition this Wednesday March 9, 2011. She verbally agreed (January 20, 2011 @ 7:24pm via cell phone conversation) that I would not be charged any monies whatsoever for this proceeding and also stated that it would not reflect on my discharge. I have sent her an email asking for something in writing a month later, and she has responded back saying, “You should receive a letter shortly from Mr. Grafton addressing your concerns regarding fees for this particular portion of the Bankruptcy case (Friday, March2, 2011)
Ms. Linda Barr will not communicate with me because she says I am represented by counsel, but I did not hire the law firm for this proceeding. So, how do I proceed with what I need to do because I have to be in court this Wednesday for my Deposition? I read over my Retainer Agreement and I have read nothing about what happens after the discharge. Please help because I keep getting the run around from both ends. On the one hand, Ms. Barr and her office will not talk to me directly because they are not allowed to issue me legal advice due to me being represented by counsel. And on the other hand, the attorney who did my Bankruptcy will not give me something in writing that states I will not be charged any monies for her legal advice at my Deposition. To be honest I would much rather go it alone, so can I? And if so what paper(s) do I need to submit to the court to show I have no representation. Thanks!!!!!
