#6 - What can you do if you are sued by a collection agency?
6. Bring in the Big Guns
Debtors usually hesitate to contact an attorney when they are being sued over a debt they owe; sometimes due to embarrassment, or maybe they figure they can’t afford one. Attorneys who normally take on these types of cases, will typically offer a free consultation. They will often represent a consumer for free if they think the collector has broken the law. That’s because they will expect to collect their fees from the plaintiff. Do not be think twice to call or email a consumer protection or bankruptcy lawyer for a quick word of advice. Once the collection agency is aware that you are represented by an attorney, it may be much more amenable to settling the debt, rather than trying to settle it out in court.
