If you are currently grappling with a lawsuit from American Express, you may confused about how to proceed. Unlike many other creditors, American Express tends to be meticulous when it comes to debt lawsuits. Their legal teams often put forth multiple claims, including breach of contract, accounts stated, and unjust enrichment. They also tend to have extensive documentation like historical billing statements and cardmember agreements to support their claims.

When Legal Papers Arrive: Initial Shock And Steps Forward

Being served with legal documents like a summons and complaint can be unnerving, especially when the creditor is one you may not even recognize. Firms like Doyle & Hoefs, LLC often work on behalf of debt buyers who acquire debt from original creditors after the debtor defaults. These legal papers are not to be taken lightly; they indicate the commencement of a lawsuit against you, and if you don't respond appropriately, you could end up owing far more than just the original debt amount.

Understanding Delinquent Debt: Risks And Possible Benefits

Owing delinquent debt has its pitfalls, such as tarnishing your credit score and accumulating late fees and increased interest. However, there's also a silver lining. Debt buyers usually acquire the delinquent debt for a fraction of its original value, which means they might be willing to negotiate a reduced settlement amount. In essence, even though collection agencies aim to recover as much as they can, they are often open to accepting less than what's owed to quickly resolve the case.

Financial Hardship Is Not A Legal Shield

Many people make the mistake of thinking that financial hardship can protect them from a lawsuit. While hardship can be a point of negotiation after you've filed a proper legal answer, it's not a defense in and of itself. Our attorneys are skilled at leveraging your financial situation to negotiate lower settlement amounts once the legal procedures have been followed.

New York Laws And Legal Procedures

Generally, only a few law firms represent American Express in New York credit card lawsuits and debt collection cases. In dealing with them, your first step should be to file an answer to the lawsuit as per the New York Rules of Civil Procedure. This answer should be submitted to the court and a copy should be sent to the creditor's law firm. it should include general denials, any affirmative defenses, and any relevant counterclaims. By retaining our experienced attorneys, you can be confident that your case will be handled professionally and comprehensively.
