Edelman Combs Latturner & Goodwin, LLC
Please contact us if Codilis & Associates is attempting to collect money from you or foreclose on your home, in Illinois.
We regularly defend cases that they bring and can protect your interests. Our attorneys have a total of more than 100 years experience handling consumer lawsuits, including both lawsuits by consumers and lawsuits against consumers. One of them wrote the book on defending collection lawsuits. D. Edelman et al., Collection Litigation: Representing the Debtor (Illinois Institute for Continuing Legal Education 2008, 2011, 2014, 2019, 2022 editions), as well as the chapters in Illinois Institute for Continuing Legal Education publications on the Truth in Lending Act, Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, Telephone Consumer Protection Act, and mortgage-related claims.
If you are being sued, it is important that you do not default (fail to appear in court), and that you vacate any defaults that exist right away. Debt buyers and debt collectors count on your defaulting in order to win. Once they have a default judgment, they will try to sell your home or garnish your wages and bank accounts. Make sure to call us for a free consultation as soon as possible before your court date, or if a default has already been entered, right away.
We do not charge for evaluating cases. If we conclude that we can be of assistance to you, we charge modest fees for defending collection cases.
