Success Rate

Collection Agency Success Rate

Here is a list of the collection agency lawsuits that we have completed to date from 2009-2011. (This list does not include our active lawsuits, merely those that have been litigated to completion, and I will not disclose my clients’ names due to confidentiality promises that I make to each client). While I cannot guarantee the outcome of any lawsuit, and I cannot guarantee that you will encounter the same success as my previous clients, I like to think that our track record speaks for itself. This list is accurate as of December 31, 2011.

As you can see, the results are staggering. Almost $4,000,000.00 in debt cases, completely defeated. The clients in the above list have paid a grand total of $0 towards the alleged debt listed in their lawsuits.

To be fair, we have settled several Capital One, Discover, American Express, Bank of America and Citibank cases in 2009-2011. On certain original creditor cases, like those just mentioned, negotiation of the debt is a proper remedy. We are
able to settle these cases, most times, for a fraction of the amount that is due and owing.
