I’m trying to settle a judgment & can’t seem to get in touch with the attorney. Do I need to retain an attorney to settle?
Judgment was in 2006. Have attempted multiple times to contact the attorney and have only reached her once. I would like to settle this debt and clear my credit report. Would it be best if I used another attorney to facilitate this?
A agree with Mr. Dauval that is may be necessary in the end to hire an attorney. However, I would recommend first attempting to contact the attorney writing or by an appointment. Attempting to contact the attorney during a random call is very difficult, whereas, setting a telephone conference time or sending your offer in writing will allow the attorney to reply at her own time and fit it into her schedule. In addition, if you contact her in writing with an offer to settle that has a deadline, say 30 days, she will have a duty to notify her client.
