Should I hire a nonlawyer firm to handle the debt collection lawsuit against me?
“I’ve been sued by a debt collector. Should I hire an non-lawyer firm such as Ferry & Nicolas to handle my debt collection lawsuit?”
They aren’t lawyers, but they will advertise to people who are in debt collection lawsuits and say that they can help.
Here are a few thoughts on this issue.
You are in a lawsuit. Take this very seriously.
You’re in an actual lawsuit.
Ferry & Nicholas has sent you a letter, which definitely means you should be serious about it.
You have 5 options when you’re in a debt collection lawsuit.
1. You can file bankruptcy.
2. You can fight it on your own.
3. You can settle it on your own.
4. Hire a lawyer to fight it.
5. Hire a lawyer to settle it.
(You can find a detailed article/video here about your five options).
Let’s break this down a little bit.
If you handle your debt collection lawsuit on your own, there are advantages and disadvantages to that. We can walk you through these and provide resources to you.
If you hire a lawyer, then you need to weigh the costs and benefits of doing so.
Again, there are advantages and disadvantages to hiring a lawyer.
But you should never hire a non-lawyer when you’re in the middle of a lawsuit.
You’re in a court.
If you don’t follow the rules, then you’ll lose your case.
Handle the lawsuit on your own, which in some cases is the best option.
Or, hire an attorney to handle your case.
If you hire a non-lawyer, you’re wasting your time and money on something that we believe you would be better off handling on your own.
