Court Sanctions Debtor’s Lawyer for Failing to Disclose Fees by Requiring him to Disgorge One-Half of Fees

The U.S. Trustee sought to disgorge all of the $20,500 in attorney’s fees that Debtor’s counsel received since he failed to disclose the fees pursuant to  11 USC 329.

Debtor’s counsel objected to the Trustee’s Motion to Disgorge by claiming that §329(a)  is unconstitutional, that the $20,500 fee was not excessive based on the work performed, and a few other grounds.
