I received a summons today for an outstanding debt on my car.

Customer Question
Everything I have read says...
I received a summons today for an outstanding debt on my car. Everything I have read says I should consult an attorney but I don't know what type. I have not received anything from anyone in about three years and honestly have forgotten all about it as I had a W/C accident Oct 2008 breaking my right wrist and then another W/C Nov 2008 when someone knocked me down breaking my right collarbone. Now may need to have surgery on the wrist. To complicate matters even more, I was involved in an auto accident a month ago when other party ran red light hitting me, totaling car I was driving (not one in summons) and injuring my left shoulder. Have seen a doctor and going through therapy but does not seem to be helping, been told I may have a torn rotator cuff won't know anymore until see doctor again next week. Money is tight and I am so stressed I just feel I cannot handle this myself. ould you please give me some guidance as to what type of attorney I need?
Thank you for your assistance

ElaineAtlanta, GA

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.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
