$3,187 CitiFinancial Collection Lawsuit Dismissed!

Today in District Court, we did it again. The Mobile Bar Association’s Volunteer Lawyer Program sent me a client on Friday – she had a court date today. This was less time than I’d have preferred to plan a defense of her case, but I went for it anyway. The collector was suing my client for $3,187 on an old loan from Citi Financial. She was a single, working mother of three and has an 11 month old baby girl. My client has a job, but she cannot afford her paycheck to be garnished – not with two teenagers in school and a baby to take care of. So I went to court for her and challenged the collector’s proof. I won. She no longer has to worry about that debt and it should soon be deleted from her credit report.

Another debt bites the dust.
