How We Can Help
Generally, clients approach our firm because they are being sued for past due obligations for things such as a bank loan or credit card debt. There are several options for helping you in this type of situation. The first would be to negotiate a settlement. Oftentimes, our clients are able to repay part of their debt and are just in need of a payment plan. The most common reason for a collection lawsuit is that the debtor has stopped paying and this can be because they refuse to pay for some objection but more often, the person cannot afford the obligation of payments. We can help you negotiate with your creditors and show that you are in need of a lower monthly payment and they are often willing to compromise. Creditors want to be paid and they are often aware that negotiating is the best way to get at least some money.

What if I have been served a complaint?
Complaints are a time sensitive matter and you need to act promptly. You only have 21 days from the time that you are served the complaint to file an answer. If you fail to do so, the court is able to enter a default judgment without having a hearing or notifying you of a court date. This is surprising to many because they assume that they will have a court date to attend before having a judgment against them. This is not the case, the court will only notify you of a court date or hearing if you file an answer to the complaint. Due to this, you need to seek help from an attorney quickly and we can help you file an answer and get started building your defense.
