If you are being sued by a creditor because you failed to make payments on a debt, there are actions you can take to protect yourself and any financial resources you have. The most important thing to do is consult a knowledgeable debt relief lawyer as soon as possible.
At the law offices of Nathan Erlich, P.C., we believe that everyone deserves an advocate to help during times of financial difficulty. Individual consumers do not have the same power that large credit card companies and other creditors have, but effective legal assistance can close the gap. Call toll free 877-518-7581 or contact us online for help. We serve clients throughout Queens and Brooklyn, including Flushing.
Is it Too Late to Talk to a Lawyer?
The best time to talk to an attorney is as soon as you know you won't be able to make good on the debts you owe. Your lawyer can help you negotiate debt settlement agreements and can provide advice about whether a bankruptcy filing may be in your best interest.
However, even if you have already been sued — and even if a creditor already has a judgment against you — it is not too late to get help.
- You have just been sued: A Chapter 7 bankruptcy can eliminate the lawsuit against you. As soon as you hire our law firm and we agree on a payment plan, you no longer have to suffer the constant phone calls from the debt collectors.
- You have a judgment against you: If you ignored the lawsuit, you are not alone. Many people contact our office after they have received the notice of judgment. If we act quickly to file bankruptcy, we can stop the creditor from freezing your bank accounts or garnishing your wages.
- Your bank account is frozen or your wages are being garnished: After a creditor gets a judgment against you, the company may freeze your bank account or garnish your wages. A bankruptcy filing lifts the freeze and stops the wage garnishment. You may even be able to recover the wages the company has already taken.
