Hi Geraldine,

I am sorry to hear about the predicament you are in with the attorney you are having problems with. Have you tried contacting the BAR Association in your state? They may be able to assist you with getting in contact with the attorney and getting the services you have paid for. If you let me know what state you are in and the attorney’s information I can find out which office you can contact.
You can also file a complaint with BCA and we will reach out to the attorney with your issues in hopes that they will respond. Here is a link to file a complaint: https://www.checkbca.org/file-complaint.

Geraldine, I came across some information that may help you with filing bankruptcy on your own without an attorney. Just another avenue you may want to consider: https://www.uscourts.gov/services-forms/bankruptcy/filing-without-attorney.

If you prefer, you can email me the attorney’s information at npitts@checkbca.org and I will see what information I can come up with.
