Sued by a debt collector?

Call our New York, Brooklyn & Queens Debt Lawyer today.

We can help you take the important first step of sending a formal response to your legal notice.  This will trigger your rights to stop debt collector harassment.  Additionally, a dispute requires a collection agency to send proof of your debt.

Your paperwork may also be filed with the court clerk’s office, to prevent a default judgment from being entered against you.

Court debt collection must be taken seriously, or you could be surprised by entry of a money judgment, followed by a wage garnishment or frozen bank account.

Our expert NY, Queens & Brooklyn debt lawyer is knowledgeable about all of the major defenses to credit card debt collection lawsuits.  These defenses include the debt collection statute of limitations and un-fair debt collection activity.

How can we resolve your case?

With original creditor banks, we are often able to negotiate favorable credit card debt settlement agreements.  If a lawsuit is filed in court, the best settlements and monthly payment plans can usually be obtained by fighting the lawsuit to obtain leverage in settlement negotiations.

With debt buyer companies, we can often obtain low settlement amounts, and if you are being sued by debt collector lawyers in court we may be able to get the collection case dismissed.  Further, if we do defeat a debt buyer lawsuit, the collection agency may have to pay some or all of the legal fees on your behalf.
