I had all these questions going through my mind as to what was going to happen. Luckily I found out about John Watts at Watts & Herring through a youtube video. I contacted the office and talked with Carolyn. She was very nice and assured me that everything… (Read more)

Frederick is an Alabama consumer who was sued by a debt collector (also known as a junk debt buyer).  We are always suspicious of debt collector suits as the debt collectors are notorious for suing people who do not owe the debt or the debt collector does not own the debt. Here is what Frederick had to say (you can read our Avvo reviews here): Attorney Watts and his team listened to my case and explained clearly my options. He… (Read more)

Attorneys are pretty specialized and even attorneys that deal with bankruptcy or other financial matters may not know about all the laws — and ways to properly use the laws — related to other consumer protection areas such as being sued by a debt collector.  This would be a debt buyer such as Asset Acceptance, LVNV Funding, Midland Funding, Unifund, etc. Here is a short testimonial from a lawyer who asked us to help him with a debt buyer lawsuit… (Read more)

Attorney George about John Watts and being sued

Regina, like so many other Alabama consumers, was sued by Midland Funding who claimed (but couldn’t prove) it owned an old debt. Midland sued — which they are good at doing — but Midland did not prove its case.

Now Regina will look to finish the good work… (Read more)

Here is a very nice review from Michael on our Facebook page (Alabama Consumer Protection Attorneys) who was sued by Midland Funding.  As you may know, Midland Funding is one of the biggest debt collectors (debt buyers) and they file hundreds and hundreds of lawsuits each month in Alabama. Most consumers have good options when dealing with Midland — and I don’t mean to file bankruptcy or pay Midland — but most consumers simply don’t know their options and rights.… (Read more)

You can read the review on my Avvo profile here.  When you are sued by a debt buyer, it is often doable to represent yourself if you have the time and determination to do it but other times it makes more sense to hire an attorney.  We appreciate clients putting their trust in us to help them through difficult situations. Mr. Watts was amazing! I am so glad that I called. I received a court summons and had no idea… (Read more)

Stephanie was sued by a debt buyer as many Alabama consumers are these days.  She quickly turned to my law partner Stan Herring, who is from Mobile and will soon be opening our Mobile office, to defend her in this lawsuit.

John Watts is unlike any lawyer I have ever met. He is personable, knowledgeable, respectful, and an all around great guy.

Having represented several major credit card companies, I have mixed feelings about seeing John Watts’ name appear on the other side of one of my cases.

There is so much information there! I spoke with John… (Read more)

I found myself being sued by Midland Credit Management, alleging they were the owner of my credit card debt unpaid balance. Being sued is certainly intimidating and worrisome at best.

I researched everywhere and anywhere on the internet, bought books on the subject, contacted online advocates and by the grace… (Read more)

John Watts and his staff have been a Godsend to us. They have helped us stop the harassing telephone calls and letters from debt collection companies and instead of them suing us we sued them.
