Potential defenses in a debt lawsuit
Losing a debt lawsuit could result in years of continued financial problems and the seizure of your property. That’s why retaining an attorney who concentrates on debt defense is so important. We know how to counter allegations and find creditor errors that could lead to a dismissal or a favorable verdict. If you hire an inexperienced attorney, you might be hurting your ability to obtain the disposition you seek. For example, documents used as evidence against you might not be accurate, especially if the suit is filed by a debt buyer or another party with no actual connection to you. Our firm has won numerous cases because a plaintiff could not locate key documentation, such as a promissory note or required communication.
