Have you been sued by a debt buyer or a credit card company? Recent years have seen an explosion in the number of debt collection cases filed in the courts. If you have been sued by a debt collector, call us immediately to discuss your case. You only have a short time to answer the collector’s complaint. An answer is a response to a complaint. If you don’t answer the debt collector will win by default and will be able to collect on the judgment from you. The debt collector can garnish your wages, freeze your bank account or put a lien on your house if he or she gets a judgment against you.
Jason A. Shear has helped numerous consumers across New York obtain favorable settlements or many times get the collection case dismissed. We can identify many defenses that can help you in your case. Most of the entities bringing most consumer collection cases today are not the original creditor but a debt buyer represented by a collection law firm that brings huge number of cases in state courts.
Sometimes you may have a counterclaim against the debt buyer. With our experience we can spot illegal behavior by the debt collection attorney or the creditor.
We can also assist you if you need to get a default judgment vacated (making a judgment void so the debt collector cannot collect on it). If you do have a judgment against you Courts do not like it when a consumer waits too long to ask the court to vacate the default judgment once he or she finds out about the judgment. So it is important to get help immediately!
