Lawsuit Defense Attorney in New York City
If you are dealing with a large amount of unpaid debt, there may come a
point at which a creditor can legally sue you for the balance due. Typically,
other measures such as
wage garnishment, auto repossession, foreclosure and
bank levies are taken only if litigation has ensued and there is a judgment in place.
No debtor, however, is safe from the possibility of legal action being
taken against them. Your creditor is more likely to pursue litigation
if you have income or assets that can be taken. If a lawsuit is filed,
you will need to fight the claims against you. After getting served with
a debt collection lawsuit, your first defense should be to secure the
legal assistance of our
New York City debt relief lawyers.

What to Do if Involved in a Legal Battle
As you face this legal battle, it is first important to know the laws that
pertain to your case and the methods creditors can use to collect on a
judgment against you. You will also want to take action as soon as possible
- do not ignore the summons or you could incur a judgment leading to bank
levies and wage garnishment. At Lebedin Kofman LLP, we prepare an effective
defense against the claims of the creditors and we are skilled at negotiating
and arranging debt settlement agreements.
Defenses to Creditor Lawsuits
Remember that your situation is not hopeless. With solid defense and an
aggressive lawyer, you may be able to prevent the other side from winning
and taking away your assets. An affirmative defense is one type of defense
that can be used in against the creditor. If you deny any facts, you will
then need to prove to the court any new arguments. You can also make a
counterclaim that is based on different issues, such as a violation of
your rights, from those brought up in the creditor's complaint. During a
free case evaluation, our New York City lawsuit defense attorneys can act on your behalf.
