We were retained to represent a client who came to us trying to stop a garnishment of their bank account by Capital One, represented by Hayt, Hayt and Landau. Those debt collection lawyers claimed they were entitled to the garnished money from our client’s bank account because they had signed a Stipulation for Entry of Final Judgment Execution Withheld.
Working with our client, we were able to establish that the money in the bank account was exempt from garnishment, and therefore could not be seized. We were also able to establish the signed Stipulation did not cover these funds. Based on the results of our investigation and legal analysis, Capital One agreed to voluntarily dismiss their garnishment.
