Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do my very best to answer your legal questions.

If I were in your shoes, I would go to the courthouse where the judgment was entered against you, and has the court clerk to review the file. I would then look for a document which indicates how you were supposedly served a summons. There would have to be some indication because the judge would not enter a judgment against you unless he thought that you were served. Once you understand how the plaintiffs supposedly served you, you can determine how to proceed. The bot***** *****ne is that if you were not properly served, then you can file a motion to vacate the judgment against you.

Does that answer your question(s)? Please let me know if you need clarification, as I am happy to continue helping you until you are satisfied. Also, please remember to provide a positive rating via the stars (and note that your positive rating is the only way that I'll get credit for helping you, so it is much appreciated!). Thank you. :)

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
