DEBT CAN BE OVERWHELMING. ESPECIALLY WHEN CREDITORS SUE YOU. SO LET US FIGHT BACK FOR YOU.

You are here because you are a New York resident

Being sued for a debt or harassed by a debt collector; or Trying to remove inaccurate info from your credit report.

Almost everyone deals with debt or credit issues.

1 in 3 Americans has had a bill sent to collections at one point in their life. Last year, the debt collection industry collected over $55 BILLION dollars from consumers just like you. Many of those debts were collected by third party debt buyers, who paid pennies on the dollar to buy charged-off debts, and entered default judgments against unsuspecting debtors. It's a problem that many deal with, but few know how to FIGHT BACK. You don't have to deal with debt collectors alone. We offer an affordable way to retain an experienced and seasoned consumer litigation lawyer to represent you with the objective of having your debt collection lawsuit dismissed permanently.

WE FIGHT TO HAVE YOUR DEBTS DISMISSED PERMANENTLY.

Debt collection litigation is a complicated matter with many laws, rules, and regulations that must be followed by debt collectors. If debt collectors fail to follow the rules and the law, your debt collection lawsuit may be dismissed. Often times, after a default judgment is vacated, debt collectors will find it more cost-effective to offer a significant reduction in the amount of the debt than go through the time and expense of litigating the case.

Credit Reporting Agencies (Transunion, Equifax and Experian) and Medical Debt
