Have you been sued by Mann Bracken or another collections law firm? Fight back!

If you have been sued by Mann Bracken or another high-volume collections law firm such as CIR Law Offices, Brachfeld & Associates, and Winn Law Group, here's a secret they definitely don't want you to know: most of the time the debt they are suing you for has been sold on the market several times, and by the time it gets to one of these collections law firms, the actual evidence of your debt (such as the promissory note or contract) is long lost. Thus, you have a very good chance of getting the case dismissed if you just fight it! Don't ignore it when you get served with a lawsuit. Contact an attorney such as me to help you fight it.

These types of firms make their money obtaining "default judgments" - that's when the debtor doesn't answer the lawsuit. When a collections firm gets a default judgment against a debtor, then their bank client can start to go after the debtor by garnishing wages, levying on bank accounts, and putting liens on the debtor's real estate. Don't let this happen to you.

Although no lawyer can promise a specific outcome for you, I have been successful against Mann Bracken simply by forcing them (through the discovery process) to show me what they've got as evidence - NOTHING! With no evidence, they are forced to dismiss the case.

If you are currently being sued by Mann Bracken or any other high-volume collections law firm, please call me today to see whether I can assist you. My fee for such services generally runs $1,000 - $1,500, plus the court's filing fee to file your answer to the complaint, but may vary or increase depending on the amount of debt you owe, whether there are any complexities in your case, and whether the collections law firm is actually able to produce evidence of the debt.
