Should I hire a lawyer?

You certainly have the right to hire or consult with your own lawyer, and the Receiver encourages you to speak with your own lawyer should you feel more comfortable. The Receiver will be investigating all potential claims and working with class counsel and others in order to maximize the pool of assets that will be available for distribution to all victims. Regardless of whether or not you have a lawyer, the Court will authorize a distribution plan that treats all similarly situated creditors the same.
