What is a lien/how affects me?

What is the name of your state? KY

In 1998, I hired a lawyer for child custody case. I put up the retainer. In 1999, when I was losing the case, the lawyer withdrew from my case due to ill effects of stress??

A few weeks after he withdrew, he sent one last bill. Some charges were for drawing up paperwork for his withdrawl. Needless to say, with having to retain another attorney, his fees were not paid in full.

June 9th, 2002, he sent a bill to my mom's address which I just got today. In it he states that if I don't respond within 10 days (which has already passed), he will place an attorney's lien in county records, for the amount plus interest of 1% per month.

How does this affect my credit? I am lost.....
