Case #22-0048398

Client seeks assistance with an arbitration hearing in the Court of Common Pleas scheduled for August 25, 2022, at 9:15 am. One Main Financial Group is suing Client on a personal loan of $6,167.39. Client took out a personal loan with One Main Financial Group in August 2021. Client lost her job in November 2018, and fell behind on payments as a result. Client began paying small amounts each month in lieu of her regular payments, but never saw those payments applied to her balance. In July 2021, the parties came to a settlement agreement of $1,639.00, and an order was issued as to that amount. In August 2021, One Main Financial Group appealed the decision. Client is retired and unemployed, but is not judgment proof. Client’s goal is to negotiate the debt back to the original settlement amount and negotiate an affordable payment plan. An attorney is needed to negotiate on Client’s behalf and represent her at the upcoming hearing.
