Dallas Bankruptcy Lawyer Bennett Cunningham Catches Arizona Law Firm Red-Handed

Bennett Cunningham, an Investigative Reporter Turned Dallas Bankruptcy Attorney, Recently Caught an Arizona Law Firm in a Lie to a Bankruptcy Client

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - March 21, 2011) - Many people remember Bennett Cunningham from the days when he used to be an investigative reporter on TV. Now, he's a Dallas bankruptcy lawyer. It was this background and experience as an investigator that has enabled him to catch an Arizona law firm trying to "pull a fast one" on a bankruptcy client.

Few Dallas bankruptcy lawyers have gone above and beyond their call of duty like Bennett Cunningham. Not many Dallas bankruptcy attorneys have the previous experience of Cunningham, who used his skills as an investigative reporter to solve this case. He instantly questioned if what he found was a pattern of illegal behavior.

A client currently in the process of Chapter 7 bankruptcy recently became the target of a law office that stated it represented a creditor which claimed a guitar she bought was a purchase money loan. The creditor demanded the return of the guitar or the money back. Cunningham cried foul and demanded the law firm show him the paperwork for the guitar.

"The law firm paralegals began stuttering, they were so confused by my call," said Cunningham. "The attitude turned from niceties to silence in a matter of seconds."

Cunningham, a former investigative reporter for a CBS Television affiliate turned attorney, says the law firm had to tell their client that they couldn't get the guitar back. "Too often, these creditors and their debt collector law firms roll right over people," added Cunningham. "I don't let that happen to my clients." In the end, their priority in bankruptcy went from the top of the heap to the bottom.
