The last I heard was they would check with their clients, but I have heard nothing..what can I do? I am in a position to get this done,..they just don't respond. Everything is being done through email. When I first contacted them, they asked me if I could pay a certain amount, over the phone, I had contacted them, I said yes, they said they would check, when they got back to me, they said it had to be the original amount, so I called the attorney back, and told her she told me the lower amount, then she told me again, she would check with the clients and get back to me, she has not, what can I do? This house deal has to be done soon otherwise I may lose it.
challenge the debt on your credit report, if that does not work contact your state bar that regulates attorneys, it is an ethical violation for the attorney to fail to return your calls, but just filing a grievance won't help your negotiating with that attorney. most state bars have some type of informal process which will force the attorney to deal with you.
Why is a judgment against you stopping you from buying the house? Is it preventing you from getting a mortgage?
If this judgment is related to a consumer debt and the attorney will not properly respond to your requests, you may want to try and speak directly to the creditor. You should also reach out to a Pennsylvania consumer rights attorney to see if there are any options available to resolve this issue.
