Customer Question

Hi, I received a letter from a credit Service company about a lawsuit that was filed against me. I have not received a summons. I do not know who the creditor is. On the court history, it says a hearing as been set up in July to show why Proof of Service was not done?

Thank you for the post, what question can I answer for you regarding the credit service company issue?

I am not sure what to do? I have attached what is on the court website. Do I not need to be notified if someone is suing me?

Hello, you should contact the court clerk to get a copy of the proof of service. It may be that the plaintiff has represented to the court that you were served when you were not.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
What is the hearing for in July? Can a case go foward if i have not been served?
Expert:  MShore replied 3 years ago.
Hello, the hearing is apparently for you to explain why you have not complied with a judgment that has entered against you, but without speaking with the court clerk one cannot be sure what the purpose of the hearing is.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
I have not received any judgement against me. Can just answer provide me with a list of legal service providers in Southern CA?
Expert:  MShore replied 3 years ago.
Hello, do you mean services such as pro bono legal service providers or attorneys to be retained for a fee?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Not using the legal world for services often, I not sure of what a pro bono legal service provider is?
Expert:  MShore replied 3 years ago.
Hello, pro bono means for free.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
A combination would be nice. I presume you would get what you pay for in legal services.
Expert:  MShore replied 3 years ago.
That presumption is often correct, but a combination of two does not exist (unless you mean low cost legal assistance, in which case your presumption again holds true).
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
OK, Lets go with a real attorney that handles this type of claim.
Expert:  MShore replied 3 years ago.
ok, while Just Answer prohibits Legal Experts from offering referrals directly, I can suggest that you contact the lawyer referral service at(NNN) NNN-NNNN
