Court records are public. There's nothing illegal about a lawyer reviewing court filings and offering services to people who bring lawsuits or are sued (if they don't have a lawyer already). I'm sure that's how the lawyer got your name, not from a credit report.
It's a nuisance; when I file an appeal, I usually get calls and letters from various printing companies that want to help produce the briefs. Nothing illegal about that.
Now, if the lawyer called you on the phone, instead of sending a letter, that could be improper solicitation and you can report him to the disciplinary board. But there wasn't any invasion of privacy.
