Question
I hope you can help me!  I am being sued by Slater, Tenaglia, Fritz & Hunt.  They are representing a company that claims they bought the rights to an old defaulted credit card account.  

This debt is a little old but I am not sure if it's past the statute of limitations.  Also, the amount Slater, Tenaglia, Fritz & Hunt is claiming I owe is not correct.  Can you offer any advice?  Is this a case you can help me with?  Please help! I live in New York State.

Answer
Bob:

Great question.  Yes, this debt collection lawsuit brought by Slater, Tenaglia, Fritz & Hunt is something I can help you with.

Based on what you wrote, it sounds like they are representing a debt buyer. There are numerous affirmative defenses that I use which can lead to a dismissal of the debt buyer's lawsuit.

I have helped consumers just like you and I have defended numerous debt collection cases in New York brought by debt collection law offices. Give me a call directly for help.
