Stop Losing Sleep Over Financial Health and Reputation

Posted by Ryan D. Peterson | Nov 01, 2021 | 0 Comments

What should I do if a debt collection company has filed a lawsuit against me?

If you find yourself facing a lawsuit over a debt, one good solution is to seek the assistance of a debt defense attorney. Oftentimes, you don't feel you owe them money, and the debt collection company is not a company you recognize.

Maybe you feel the amount is in dispute or the other party did not fulfill their obligations to you. Perhaps, the creditor used unlawful harassment tactics to try to bully you into paying.

There are many laws that protect consumers from rogue creditors and less-than-ethical contract collection companies.

What Our Client's Say

Ryan is a godsend!

I was understandably nervous when I received documentation from a creditor in the mail. Being unfamiliar with consumer rights laws and fair debt collection practices, I figured I would let my court date come and go and deal with the outcome later. 

That's when Ryan stepped in. I received a letter in the mail from him stating that he would represent me in court and pretty much handle the situation. I will admit that I was skeptical at first because I didn't know if this was legit or who I could trust. I took the risk and gave him a call. That was the best decision ever!

From our first conversation, I was put at ease. Ryan is very knowledgeable and he gets results!  My case turned out better than I could have ever expected. 

He handled everything for me from going to court to all of the communications with the creditor. I was able to sleep at night without worries and I hadn't done that in a long time.  

I would recommend him to anyone. He's personable, respectful, and an expert at his craft!
