Case #20-0044677

Client has a debt collection arbitration hearing coming up on April 14, 2020, at 10:45 am in the Court of Common Pleas. Capitol One Bank filed a complaint against client for over $6,000 in June 2018. A default judgement was entered because client did not know about the hearing. When he found out about the judgment, he filed a petition to open in October 2019. At the hearing on the petition, the court granted the petition to open and found in favor of client. Plaintiff then filed notice to appeal and served client with a complaint. A response to the complaint is due on March 17, 2020. As background, client was unable to make payments on a credit card in 2015 after suffering a severe accident and losing his job. Client also had his credit card stolen the same year, and he notified the bank and filed a police report. Client is confident that a large portion of the judgment is a result of the card being stolen. Client needs an attorney to draft a response to the complaint and represent him at the arbitration.
