Do I have any rights should I contact a lawyer?

Dear Denise,

A partial car payment does not protect your car from being repossessed. I suspect you were behind and that this was not the first time your loan was not current.

The car lender is allowed to sell your car at auction and then go after you for the difference between the low auction sale price and what you currently owe on the car.

By all means you should contact a local attorney to make sure they followed the appropriate procedures for repossessing a vehicle in your state.
