My family and myself were in a car accident. An attorney contacted us about representation. We went through the process and got a very small settlement. After the fact we got a collection notice from one of the medical bills. I called the attorney and was assured that the bill had been paid, they would speak to accounting. The collection agency called us a couple more times and we explained the situation. Attorney again said the bill had been paid. We did not hear anything for a while. My husband checked our credit and found the collection still on our report. I tried to contact the attorney, but it was disconnected. I found on line that he is in prison for tax evasion and also for taking money and not paying clients medical bills. Is there anything we can do?
