Will my lawyer want me to be at the debt collection trial?
We get a lot of questions from people we represent or even others that we don’t represent.
Can an original creditor report a balance owed after the debt is sent to another collector?
You have an original creditor (Capital One, Synchrony) on your credit report showing a balance, and they have sent it to another debt collector (Midland Funding, LVNV, Portfolio Recovery) who is also on your credit report showing a balance.
What are your time limits to respond when you have been sued by a debt collector?
The majority of these lawsuits take place in state court.
When dealing with crooked companies look for federal laws to sue (FCRA, TCPA, etc.)
Recently, I was speaking with a client about some bad conduct that a company was doing to him. He was upset about this conduct, and rightfully so.
