Sued for a debt? Here's how we can help.
If you’re getting sued for a debt, BCJ Law may be able to help in one of two ways. First, we may be able to win your case outright. That means you won’t owe the debt collector anything. Second, we may be able to get you a favorable settlement. Whether we can help and what we can do depend on the following factors:
If you’re getting sued by a debt buyer BCJ Law can likely win your case. A debt buyer is a company that generally pays pennies on the dollar for old debt, then sues consumers for profit. Debt buyers include Midland Funding, Portfolio Recovery Associates, CACH LLC, LVNV Funding, Unifund CCR, and Velocity Investments.
We beat debt buyers because they almost always lack the documents necessary to prove their case and don’t bring witnesses to court. Without documents or witnesses, its difficult for debt buyers to win their case. To learn more about how BCJ law can win for you, visit our debtdefensepa.com website. This website is dedicated to BCJ Law’s debt defense and debt harassment practice area.
Do I need to hire an attorney if I'm getting sued for debt?
It depends. Sometimes, hiring an attorney to defend your case or obtain a settlement is not worth the money. If we think you won’t benefit from our services, we’ll let you know. That said, hiring an attorney in the right circumstances can be valuable.
Here are some of the benefits of hiring BCJ Law if you get sued for a debt:
How much does it cost to hire a debt defense attorney?
BCJ Law offers money back guarantees for our debt defense service. If we don’t meet your goals, whether that is settlement or dismissal of your case, we will refund any attorney fee you pay. The only non-refundable cost we charge are any court costs, like appeal fees, that may be necessary in your case. If we think you will pay any of those costs, we will let you know at the outset of your case.
Our debt defense fee is based off a number of factors, including the following:
Generally, BCJ Law’s debt defense fee ranges between $500-$1500. That said, we may drop our fee below this range if the amount of debt you’re getting sued for is relatively small, or if special circumstances exist. Conversely, our fee may increase if your case is pending far from Allegheny County or if other factors are present.

Can I ignore debt collection lawsuits?
If you ignore debt collection lawsuits it may cost you. When people ignore a debt lawsuit, a default judgment is entered against them. Once a debt collector has a default judgment it can engage in aggressive collection tactics, like garnishing bank accounts or seizing property. Judgments also can last for years, and allow debt collectors to try to garnish your bank account up to 20 years after they get a judgment against you. So, while you can ignore a collection lawsuit, failing to deal with a lawsuit at the outset can be costly.
