Consumers may potentially be sued to collect all manner of debts. Among the most frequent debts resulting in collections lawsuits are credit cards, medical bills, and telecommunications contracts. These suits very greatly in quality and in merit. Sometimes, a defendant simply cannot pay, and has no disagreement over the amount owed. Other times, the collections plaintiff may have made errors regarding the amount owed, or even the identity of borrower/obligor.
We offer collections defendants counsel regarding their options, which include defending on the merits, defending execution of a judgment, or filing bankruptcy. For a broad overview of these options, please see our blog post about options for defendants in collections lawsuits.
Legal costs are often a key concern for collections defendants. While we can offer full service representation throughout a collections lawsuit, we also will provide limited representation on selected aspects of a case for clients desiring predicable flat-rate legal costs.
