Attorney Paul Russell handled a routine re-financing for us back in 2002. We are in the process of selling our home, and found that the mortgage was never properly discharging resulting in a lien being placed on our property for the mortgage which was paid off 11 years ago.
Attorney Russell has ignored our calls and voice mails and is not helping us resolve this situation. His only response is that "I would have no files or data that would pertain to any file dated prior to 2006. " So, basically, we're on our own. Since he was the closing attorney, I feel he should bear some responsibility in resolving this issue. We may miss our target closing date due to this problem.
