Common Defenses to Credit Card Lawsuits

If you have been sued by a lender or if you think you may be sued by a credit card company, you need to act fast. Simply offering a reason – or a defense – can help prevent any negative actions such as wage garnishment, bank levies, property liens, or other aggressive means.

Do not think that your current situation is helpless simply because you feel as though your debt is too big or creditor actions are too overpowering. Getting the professional help of a qualified and experienced lawyer can help you move forward and start living without the constant stress of debt.

  • Common defense strategies may include, but are not limited to:
  • You already paid off the debt (in part or in full)
  • You attempted to pay off the debt but your debt was sold to another creditor
  • You were never served with papers or did not receive a complaint
  • You are being sued for debts that have expired beyond statute of limitations
  • Your debts were discharged through bankruptcy protection

Depending on the unique circumstances that surround your case, there may be countless potential defense strategies available to you. Call us at (216) 450-6689 and learn how we can help you!
