I am not sure why your attorney does not want you to have any contact with Jack ( the note holder)?
I would get a copy of the actual prommissory note instrument and calculate a balance due. This will give you a ballpark balance. IF you can find out WHEN the note stopped performing then you can back into an estimated balance due.
If your attorney does let you interact with the note holder (Jack) and perhaps also the payors on the note you can try to see if they will execute or acknowlged what are known as “Estoppels” . This is a document in an afidavit format that requests the parties to indicated the balance due, the terms, whether or not any defaults, offsets, or defenses to the payments exist, etc. - Of course there is NO guarantee that they will sign or even acknowlged the estoppels however it is worth a shot especially if your perceived as a “problem solver”…
To your succcess,
