Old Debt Comes Back
Georgia* came to us after she was served by a debt collector. She was told that she had to show up in court in a completely different county than where she lived. It was for an old medical debt that she recognized, but thought had been taken care of by insurance. She went to court on her own, and the judge gave her more time to find an attorney. During that time, NWCLC came in and filed counterclaims against the debt collector for filing the lawsuit in the wrong county. We then settled the case with a settlement to Georgia for her time dealing with the lawsuit in the wrong county and a discharge of her debt.
