Burton A. Padove
About Burton A. PadoveI have been practicing law for 28 years and am licensed in Indiana and Illinois. I am a people lawyer representing clients and helping them in their day to day legal needs throughout Indiana and Illinois. I also have clients across the country. I am a leading contributor each month to WWW. LAW GURU.COM where over 100,000 people have viewed my answers to various legal questions.
Presently I am assisting a number of victims who have suffered side effects from drug medications such as Avandia,
Levaquin and Yaz. Sometimes that means suing the drug manufacturers, other times, the doctor who should not have precribed the medication.
Additionally, I have devoted a good part of my practice in the last year to defending foreclosure suits.
I am available to consult with you for any legal problem and welcome the opportunity to provide help.

Q: The company that sold me my credit card pritection plan for Bank Of America said they would pay it in full it didnt pay.
A: You did not post a question. However, I will try to help. You may want to complain to the Department of Insurance. I am somewhat concerne that they made parial payments for two years and you did not complaint earlier. An argument can be made by them that if the agreement was to pay off the entire debt, that you would have contacted them right away when they were only making partial payments.
