I need a lawyer to defend me against this junk debt buyer credit

Customer Question

I need a lawyer to defend me against this junk debt buyer credit card TROY CAPITALL in Columbia, SC. I have been fighting very good since last year. Now the case is with Master-Equity in the court. On June 6, 2013 we will go to a hearing for their motion to Compel. I was told that the case might be at their favor because some kind of affinity they have build. I don't wanna be disppointed. They refused to fully compel with my discovery but flat answers. They don't have any evidence but want me to find it for them and pull the trigger on me. I need lawyers names and telephones in my city (29210) to fight this junk debt buyer. Thanks

Richland County Columbia, South Carolina. Question does the judge can ask me to compel something I do not have? I'm sure I do not have anything in my possession.

Expert:  Irwin Law replied 1 year ago.

Here is a list of three well-rated litigation firms in Columbia. Well rated.

A google search of Richland County attorneys produces many individual attorney listings. I don't know if this gets you to it or if you have to enter the search yourself. https://www.google.com/search? sourceid=navclient&aq=&oq=martindale+lawyers+richland+county+south+car&ie=UTF-8&rlz=1T4GGLL_enUS351US352&q=martindale+lawyers+richland+county+south+carolina&gs_l=hp..0.0.0.0.1.2756804...........0.1f-wp7jkR4s&pbx=1

Regarding your question about discovery issues, if you reply under oath that you do not have possession of the iterm that should end it. The court will not order you to produce something that you testify that you do not have.

I hope this information is helpful and that you will enter a positive rating. I thank you for submitting your question to Pearl-Just Answer. We appreciate your business.

Ok,is Master Equity fair to me? I was told they are more friendly to debt buyers than to plaintiffs?

Expert:  Irwin Law replied 1 year ago.
I do not know what Master Equity is so this is a question that I can't answer. I will opt out to see if someone else can help.

Hi, I am a moderator for this topic. It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you right away, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!
Wendy

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. I am a different expert and would like to see if I can assist you with your question.

I assume by Master Equity you mean Masters-In-Equity. Has your case been referred to a Masters-In-Equity or are considering this as an option? Also do you have a specific concern about fairness? Are you weighing your option to leave the matter in Circuit Court or have it heard by a Masters-In-Equity? Is this the context of your question?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.


The junk debt buyer plaintiff is the one who was not ready for trial and ask me to get more time in order to respond to my discovery. It was flat lies. They want it to masters-in-Equity. The case in the masters-In Equity . They file mtion to compel. i have nothing to give them. Is the Masters-In-Equity fair to me?

Expert:  LegalEagle1 replied 1 year ago.
The hearing officers in the Masters-in-Equity should not be biased to one party or another. At times people complain they are not treated fairly. Many times this is when a decision or ruling is not in there favor. You should expect when the law and facts require the hearing officer to rule in your favor, they will and when they should rule in favor of the plaintiff they will.

You will probably find that the junk debt buyer will never be properly prepared for trial. They generally try to prevail by using admissions the defendant makes during discovery. If they have filed a motion to compel, you should respond to and indicate that have nothing to provide pursuant to the discovery request. And you should respond in writing to the discovery requests.

I hope that I have answered your question. Please let me know if you have more questions or need more information.

I already filed my response to the Court Master-In-Equity and the junk debt buyer has a copy by certified mail.Last question and I will rate your response after. Can I file a motion to dismiss as a defendant after the hearing turn in my favor?

Expert:  LegalEagle1 replied 1 year ago.
Yes, a defendant you can file a motion to dismiss at any time. Rule 56(B) provides: A party against whom a claim, counterclaim, or cross-claim is asserted or a declaratory judgment is sought may, at any time, move with or without supporting affidavits for a summary judgment in his favor as to all or any part thereof.
