Case #22-0049122

Client seeks representation for a debt collection hearing on April 28, 2023, at 1:15 PM in Municipal Court. Client is being sued by Synchrony Bank/PayPal for a credit card debt of a little over $3,000. Client has been seeking employment because despite severe osteoarthritis in both his knee and sciatica, he was denied Social Security Disability. Client’s only form of income is his SNAP benefits; however, he owns his home and would like to avoid a lien. Synchrony did not provide all evidence needed to prove their case, including a written copy of the initial credit card agreement, evidence of the charges made, or date of last payment. Client is willing to enter an affordable payment agreement but has very little to offer. A volunteer is needed to represent client at his upcoming hearing and throughout this matter.
