About this Web-Book
If you are faced with a credit card lawsuit, Successfully Defending Your Credit Card Lawsuit may help you present a more robust defense. This book offers sample pleadings and motions, numerous free forms and instructions, and descriptions of the defenses and procedures in the “typical” case.
This book, as helpful as it may try to be, is not intended to substitute for good legal advice, which is recommended. Many bar associations have excellent legal referral services for the public. In addition, pro bono (no cost) legal service organizations can help you defend this type of claim. However, many people may find that no-cost legal service providers, often overwhelmed by demand, are unable to provide immediate assistance, or that private counsel is too costly to retain to defend the typical collection case.
Fortunately, the typical collection case lends itself to streamlined events and uncomplicated pleadings and defenses. This book may be a tremendous help in those situations.
