THE LAW OFFERS PROTECTION TO DEBTORS, LET US EVALUATE YOUR CASE.
WE PREVENT UNNECESSARY LOSSES BY DEFENDING YOU IN CIVIL LAWSUITS
You should always defend yourself against a civil debt-related lawsuit, even if you believe that you may owe money. The law offers protections to debtors and requires that the party bringing the claim prove its case. An experienced attorney can properly evaluate your case and discuss available defenses and likely outcomes.
You need to assert all defenses available to you. Perhaps there were flaws in the initial contract, or it could be that the debt is so old that the lawsuit is now barred. It could be that you were a victim of identity theft and were not even the person that incurred the debt. Whatever the case may be, you have to defend against the case or you risk losing.

THE BENEFIT OF HIRING AN EXPERIENCED
CIVIL DEFENSE ATTORNEY
Georgia's court rules, civil procedure and evidence rules and requirements are complicated and unforgiving. Failing to raise an issue in a timely manner may cause you to waive a valid and potentially successful defense. Mistakes such as filing documents even one day late or misreading a summons or notice can be detrimental to your defense. Failing to answer a lawsuit in a timely fashion will unquestionably result in a default judgment.
People often say, “I never got notice of a court date.” That may be true. When you are served with a lawsuit, you must take the steps required to show that you are denying the claim and presenting a defense. If you do not do so, you have waived your right to receive any further notices, including notices of the court date. You can avoid this by having an experienced attorney help you fight the case.
Our lawyer has handled these types of claims for almost a decade and a half. We know the affirmative defenses and evidence needed to win a case. You can read what some of our past clients have to say.
