Jacoby & Meyers Bankruptcy Goes Dark

Written by Steve Rhode

A tipster (send in your tips here) sent in a message about the Jacoby & Meyers Bankruptcy site had a strange message on it. For those that might not remember, Jacoby & Meyers Bankruptcy was created when Macey Bankruptcy Law merged with Jacoby & Meyers.

As of right now the Jacoby & Meyers website is essentially gone. It does have the following message on the stark site:

If you are an active client of Jacoby Meyers Bankruptcy your client file has been transferred to the below attorney’s office. You should have received notice via email, regular mail as well as certified mail. The attorneys below have agreed to take on your file and will honor all fees paid, terms and conditions as outlined in your retainer agreement with our firm.

Wow, that’s a shocker. It was just in July 2012 that I reported on the merger of the two groups and at that time the Jacoby & Meyers Bankruptcy division’s Managing Partner Jeff Aleman said, “We are pleased with this move to combine the efforts of our two firms to better serve our current and prospective clients.” Jacoby & Meyers Bankruptcy Law’s Chicago-based administrative office located in the Willis Tower (formerly the Sears Tower) will remain in place to serve bankruptcy clients, with the anticipation of expanding Jacoby & Meyers’ personal injury practice in the Chicago area. Major regional hubs of Jacoby & Meyers’ office system, including New York, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., Miami, as well as the 135 other regional and local offices will also serve clients needing bankruptcy advice along with the other consumer legal services currently offered by Jacoby & Meyers.” – Source

The site says “If you have any questions please call the attorney’s office associated with your location below:”

  • My sister, in NJ , paid Jacoby and Meyers almost $5,000 in 2012 to start bankruptcy proceedings. Their small business had gone under, and they owed American Express $10,000. She hadn’t heard anything from them in a year (except for excuses) and then received a letter stating that the office she had been dealing with was filing for bankruptcy itself. Now her creditor, American Express (which would have been covered under the bankruptcy) have put a lien on her home, which is worth way more than $10,000. She still has her signed contract with J&M. Does she have no recourse?
