We had the privilege of representing a client in County Court who had been sued for an alleged credit card debt. The Plaintiff was FIA Card Services, who was represented by attorneys Richard Battaglino, Arturo Arca and Sasha Haro from Zakheim and Associates.
They sued our client for nearly $23,000 under two different theories (Open Account and Account Stated). We used our knowledge of Florida law and the applicable Rules of Civil Procedure to aggressively defend our client. We filed interrogatories asking important questions about numerous aspects of the case that were required to be answered by FIA Card Services under oath. We filed requests for production seeking documents we could use to defend the case. We also filed requests for admission in an attempt to force the debt collector to narrow the issues in the case.
After reviewing our firm’s aggressive tactics in defending credit card lawsuits, FIA Card Services, through its attorneys Zakheim & Associates, voluntary dismissed their case without any payment at all by our client.
