I Started a Bankruptcy With Legal Helpers But They Never Filed My Bankruptcy. – Barbara

“Dear Steve,

Had a “hard time” dealing with Legal Helpers. Started a bankruptcy when I lived in Chicago. Moved to Atlanta in Oct. 2005. Is the Legal Helpers Debt Resolution, in Chicago, the same Legal Helpers, who I made payments to for a bankruptcy? Can they actually keep all the money I paid them – never had the money for the court fees. (they never did anything, tried to say a lot of things that weren’t true)

Can I get any of that money back? Still looking for all my records.


Dear Barbara,

It certainly seems reasonable to request a refund of money paid but not earned by Legal Helpers. I would doubt they’d refund all of it but I’m confident you could negotiate a return of some. Give it a try. Read my guide on How to Try to Get a Refund From a Debt Relief Company.
