Consumer Protection Law Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Hello and thank you for contacting Just Answer. I am an expert here and I look forward to assisting you today. If at any point any of my answers aren’t clear please don’t hesitate to ask for clarification.
You can do several things.
First you can sue the company and the attorney for violations of the Fair Credit Reporting Act, state and federal.
In addition, you can file a Motion for Sanctions with the court for the lawyer proceeding with a judgment after you had paid the debt per the agreement.
Finally, you can file a complaint with the State Bar for the unethical actions of the lawyer.
You will want to call around and find an attorney to represent you, look for one who does Civil Trial Law or Consumer Law.
You can find on in the phone book but a better place is www.lawyers.com.
That website allows you to search by geographic location and by area of practice.
The website is showing you are offline so I will save and exit so I can assist others. If you have any additional questions please feel free to ask them in this thread. I will be online most of the day but it may take a little while for me to answer if I am assisting others.
About the judgement, when I met customer service in that law firm, she said the judgement has been issued before pretrial of my wife (even on pretrial of mine the lawyer did not show up). Is it ok for them to sue different persons for one case and
also not telling me what happen with the case - my pretrial process- (because of they were not being showed up) and it was not my fault.
They would have to sue everyone in one case for the same obligation/debt. They can't have different lawsuit foe the same thing.
If either of you paid the requested amount there shouldn't have been a judgment entered at all.
So, from what I am telling you I think you think that I am OK to bring this case to the court ?
Yes, it seems pretty clear that they acted improperly.
Ok. Thank you very much for you responds.
You're very welcome!
Best wishes to you on this and please don't forget to leave a Positive Rating (of course I’d suggest Excellent!) so I get credit for my work.
I will:). Thanks.

One quick question. How much roughly it will cost me to hire lawyer for my case?
