Legal Question

Asked on: 9/05/12, 3:49 am

I filed for bankruptcy in Kansas in 2001. It was discharged last year. Recently my name has been added to a class action lawsuit against a mortgage company my first home was financed through. This home was in Missouri and sold in 1999, 2 years prior to my bankruptcy and not involved in it in any way. I received yesterday a letter from a bankruptcy attorney that he would help me fill out paperwork so that I could keep 50% of any settlement money I receive from this lawsuit. The rest would go to him. Is this lawyer trying to scam me? I do not see how anything related to that house could be tied back to the bankruptcy since I did not even own it at the time of filing. Why would he only want 50%? By the way I have not received any settlement money--it has not even gone to court. "IF" I did it would be less than $3000. I currently reside in North Carolina.
