Do you have lawyers...

Do you have lawyers that handle debt collectors?

Lawyer's Assistant: What state is this in? It matters because laws vary by location.

San Bernardino County, California

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have been taken so far?

I am trying to get this law firm who is threatening to sue me to do their due diligence by looking into the actual amount that I owe, but instead they keep sending me copies of all the statements that I ever had, then threatening to sue me even though I dispute the amount.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

This is with the Discover Credit Card company. Sure

What do I do about a law firm that wants to sue me even though I have made it clear that I want to pay on my account but I feel that the amount is wrong.
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
No..I am at work. I can call later but not now.
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
I cannot talk on the phone right now.
if you get an automatic phone call request, you can accept it and a phone based law expert will handle. if you prefer to proceed by chat with me, just reply to the chat. some customers choose both, but the choice is yours! ThanksAsk for proof of debt in writing per the fair debt collection practices act. Then make an offer and if creditor refuses and files you can settle in court.Yo may also have local counsel call to resolve.
martindale.com and findlaw.com are both excellent lookup directories. Both highly rated. Both used by lawyers. Easy to search and find local options.Please let me know if the reply is acceptable by responding “yes” or “acceptable”

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

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.

TonyApopka, FL

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.
