Debt Collection Defense 

If you’ve been sued by a debt collector, we can defend you. There are several defenses to debt lawsuits, but they must be raised timely. Debt collectors rely on you ignoring the paperwork, and 90% of all debt cases end in a default judgment, because the debtor did not take any action.   

Should I hire a lawyer to defend against a debt? 

Honestly, maybe not.

If your debt is under $5,000, it is just not worth hiring a lawyer to help you. The cost of the legal defense is more than you’d save on such a small debt. 

If your debt is roughly between $5,000 and $10,000, that’s probably not worth hiring a lawyer either, but it could be. The consultation is free to determine if your case is worth it.

If your debt is more than $10,000, it is most often worth it to hire a Lion Lawyer to solve your debt issue. The benefits and results justify the cost.

How much does debt collection defense cost? 

A common estimated retainer range for cases in our Probate, Family, Civil, and Real Estate/Business Divisions is $3,000-$5,000. To read more about our billing process, check out our Billing Philosophies page.
