I have a judgment against me for a school bill that was not paid. I am looking to take care of it now, but the lawyer is not responding to my requests for a current balance. I have had my state tax returns held to pay parts of this debt for the past 2 years. One time I spoke directly with the lawyer on the phone and he said he would get back to me in a couple days. He has yet to return my calls, or emails since then. That was 2 weeks ago.
2 questions here.
Can I settle for less or negotiate a pay in full amount?
Is it legal for the lawyer to ignore my requests for a current balance owed and for him to ensure that I received proper balance credit for my returns being held?Mr. Corbin, I appreciate your quick response! He has yet to actually refuse to provide the information verbally, but do his actions, the fact that he is no longer responding count as refusal? I plan on sending a registered letter today, if that does NOT get a response what should my next step be? The debt is relatively small (under $2000).
