Q: What do I do if the lawyer office garnishing my bank won’t respond?
So basically I owe a psych ward a ton of money. I was sued for it. And now they are garnishing my entire bank account. I have been trying to get ahold of the lawyer company to hopefully negotiate to stop the garnishment but they won’t return my calls and their automated emails just tell me to call. What do I do? I live in West Virginia but the problem is from Kansas
A: Get all of your money out of the bank and keep it out until you hire a lawyer and get this problem settled.
A: I dont know about his law firm, but if I had a garnishment in place I wouldn't negotiate with you. Why would I? The lawyer's client is the creditor, not you. You can always retain an attorney to make certain that the plaintiff's attorney has followed the garnishment statute.
