Are You Being Sued By Pressler, Felt & Warshaw, LLP?

Are You Being Sued By Pressler, Felt & Warshaw, LLP? As a law firm that often represents debt purchasers like Midland Credit Management, Inc. and LVNV Funding LLC in their efforts to collect debts from consumers, Pressler, Felt & Warshaw LLP frequently represents debt buyers in legal actions against borrowers. Debt buyers buy accounts from banks and other creditors for a discounted price and then attempt to collect the full balance owed from borrowers.

If you're facing a collection demand from Pressler, Felt & Warshaw LLP, you do have some options to avoid having a significant judgment entered against you, so it’s important to take action quickly to avoid the worst-case outcome. A good way to start taking action is to contact us at Law Office of Simon Goldenberg, PLLC to talk about your case and work with us to decide on the most efficient and effective way to manage it.

Understand The Debt

Before you take any action, it's important to verify that the debt is valid. Debt buyers are known to buy debts that are out of date, mistaken, or that have been previously resolved. You have the right to request proof of the debt, including information about the original creditor, the amount claimed, and any fees or interest that have been added. Collections lawyers tend to do everything they can to pile on the pressure in their efforts to get money from creditors. They leverage the anxiety and uncertainty that many people feel about facing a case in court to get as much money as they can for their clients who buy people’s debts.

Seeking Legal Clarity

If you're facing a lawsuit from Pressler, Felt & Warshaw LLP, it's important to seek legal help. An experienced consumer protection attorney can help you understand your options and may be able to negotiate a favorable resolution to your situation. It's important to take any claim seriously and to seek help if you're unsure of how to proceed. Ignoring the lawsuit will only make the situation worse.

You may have been surprised to be served with legal papers telling you that you’re being sued by lawyers in New York like Pressler, Felt & Warshaw, LLP. You may not recognize the name of the company that claims the right to collect a debt against you like Midland Credit Management, Inc. or LVNV Funding LLC. You may be confused about why you have been sued in New York or New Jersey and be unsure of the best way to protect your rights and your future. Contact the Law Office of Simon Goldenberg, PLLC to get a skilled lawyer on your side who will explain your rights and help you to resolve your legal case.

Settlement Negotiation

If the debt is valid, we may be able to negotiate a settlement with Pressler, Felt & Warshaw LLP. Debt buyers often purchase debts for a steep discount, which means they may be willing to settle for less than the full balance owed. Having a lawyer on your side to negotiate a settlement agreement that you can live with and getting all the details in writing before making any payments will help to protect you from paying more than you have to or committing to repayment of more debt that you can handle.

File An Answer And Litigate The Case As Needed

If we’ve determined that the debt is invalid or the amount claimed is incorrect or that you have other defenses to the legal claims you’re facing, we may file an answer to the complaint instead of trying to negotiate “from go.” An answer is a legal document that responds to the claims made in the lawsuit and raises any defenses you may have. Our team will request the evidence that the collections lawyers relied on to sue you and will work with you to build the strongest possible defense against the claims, given the unique ins and outs of your circumstances.

New York Statute Of Limitations

Debt buyers and legal collection firms are known to file lawsuits after the statute of limitations has expired. In New York, the statute of limitations for most debts was recently amended to just three years. Meaning, someone only has that long to file a lawsuit from the date of missed repayment. If the debt is older than three years, you may be able to have the lawsuit dismissed. It’s crucial to understand, though, that the statute of limitations isn’t always determined by the date you last missed a payment; it could be renewed if you’ve taken actions that might restart the date of the claim. Speak with our experienced debt defense lawyers concerning the statute of limitations in your case.
