Going to court and what to expect
If the lawsuit is less than $5,000, you will have a scheduled pretrial conference that you will have to attend. We can appear for you and often charge less than you think for these small claims lawsuits. If you decide to attend, depending on what county you are in, will meet with a mediator and someone from the law firm suing you. Usually, they appear either over the phone or they have a lawyer that is “covering” for them in person. Can you imagine this debt collection law firm has put you through so much stress and they don’t even show up to the hearing and instead hire some other person to show up? Real nice!
At that point, you will enter into negotiations on whether you can pay, how much you can pay, and when you can pay every month for the debt. You do not have to agree. If you do not agree, depending on what county, you may be sent to the judge or most likely, a trial date will be set in front of a judge – not a jury. If you enter into a settlement agreement, I strongly suggest you demand not to pay any interest on the monthly payment. They will have you sign the stipulated settlement agreement and you will be on your way.
