Our client was sued by Citibank (South Dakota), N.A. in County Court for an alleged credit card debt under various legal theories: Account Stated, Money Lent and Open Account. Citibank was represented by attorney Patrick Carey, Mairim A. Morales and Robert Rivera from the debt collection law firm of Patrick A. Carey, P.A. in Orlando, Florida.
After being served with the Summons and Complaint, our client initially reviewed information on the internet about debt collection lawsuits, but instead decided to retain us to defend against Citibank’s lawsuit. We promptly filed the appropriate notices, answer and affirmative defenses with the County Court, and served other legal documents on Citibank’s debt collection lawyers. As in many other cases, we were able to obtain an excellent result for our client: the Citibank (South Dakota), N.A. lawsuit against our client was dismissed without our client paying Citibank or their debt collector lawyers anything at all.
Don’t rely on the information on the internet, as much of it is either outdated, or not applicable to Florida law, or simply wrong. Put our experience and knowledge of Florida statutes, cases and court rules to work for you. While the facts of every case are different, one thing stays the same: the debt collection lawyers are experienced in debt collection. You need a knowledgeable Central Florida consumer protection attorney to represent you when you are sued, because your time, property, money, credit score, and your reputation are all at stake.
