I would say about 1,000.00 if that.

As you have learned, it hard to get a local bankruptcy attorney interested in pursuing litigation to remedy your failed cramdown & the false (fraudulent?) claim of the lender of a deficiency judgment when the asset in question has a low value.

Part of the resistance is that no attorney has figured out how s/he can get paid and you would not want to put any significant upfront money for an attorney to pursue a unique litigation strategy.

I regret that I have no additional substantive suggestion for how to proceed.

That's okay, If I have to I will proceed on my own. With a little research I'm sure I can do something through the bankruptcy court. I work in the court system and maybe I can get one of the attorneys to help me out for a nominal fee. It just saddens me that I was failed by an attorney who was paid to do a job and did it very poorly. If I did that in my job I would be let go. The car may not be worth much but it is mine and I shouldn't be penalized for something I didnt' do.

Yours would make a great pro bono case!
Work that angle.

I won't take your case, but if you do get an attorney, I'll take that attorney's call at no charge to anybody.

Not much of an offer,I guess, but the price is right and I do know your case better than most...
