My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be assisting you with your legal question.

The 4/4/13 entry is simply an entry which means that the clerk has scanned the file for someone. It is likely that the attorney's firm asked for a copy of all the filings in order to see if they can out any information in it to help them collect from you.
