| Consulted Attorney
A real Jerk
I was trying to my best to comply and he would simply wouldn’t. I had also sent out a proposal and weeks would go by or even days and he would say he hasn’t heard back. I call my creditors and they tell me I have not been complying at all, lastly they had accepted my proposal all while mr. Taylor wasn’t being truthful, saying he has not heard from them. Just to find out that they’ve been communicating all along. Untrustworthy to say the least.

Who is Bennett A. Taylor?
I answered a TV ad and filed a bankruptcy case with Phillips and Webster. I don't think I ever met my attorney of record, Bennett A. Taylor, and spoke to him only once on the phone. I never got his card. The attroney who showed up at the 341 hearing graduated only 5 months before and also had no card. I don't know who he was. I did speak to an attorney and received a card, but when I attempted to e-mail him, the e-mail account had been inactivated. When we arrived at the 341 hearing, we learned that the paperwork had never been submitted to the court.
