Potential Claim | Default Settlement Agreement

Please contact us if you settled an Illinois collection lawsuit and have received, within the last year, a motion claiming that you defaulted on the settlement agreement and requesting reinstatement of the lawsuit and the immediate entry of judgment, if the settlement did not expressly provide for payment of the entire amount in the event of default.  

If you are entering into a settlement, do not agree to such a provision.  

We can help you both defend the claims against you and assert your rights under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and other laws.
