Most likely, the LENDER got a judgement for the balance due on the car loan about 6 years ago. They have likely sold the judgement to an attorney who will collect on the judgement.

Yes. However, please note: 1. If the creditor who repossessed your old vehicle sued you and obtained a judgment against you, you would have to pay the judgment in full before buying another car. Otherwise, the judgment could be attached to you new car, and it too would be repossessed. 2. After a repossession, you may find it hard to get financing for a vehicle. If you need financing, check with your local bank or lenders who specialize in giving loans to borrowers with less than perfect credit.

Why would a lawyer motion to withdraw as counsel and say that further representation may create the appearance of an impropriety at the least if not an actual conflict of interest for myself?

There can be many reasons. If, for example, your lawyer had other clients who had the same or a similar claim as yours against the same defendant and there was concern upon acquiring a judgment as to the sufficiency of assets owned by the defendant, the lawyer could not take further action to collect or execute upon the judgment without prejudicing the other client. Likewise, if the other client wanted the lawyer to chase his judgment or perhaps to file a bankruptcy, the lawyer could not do so without prejudicing your interests. In such a case the lawyer might have to withdraw due to conflict of interest.

What state do you need to file for a judgment?

You probably need to ask a lawyer the answer to that question. If you are filing about something that happened in this state, you would usually need to file in this state.
