What Should I Do If I Have Been Sued?

If you are being sued by a creditor, don’t put the summons in the trash. Don’t hide it from your spouse. Don’t hope it will disappear. You have 20 days to file a formal response in court record — that means you need to call an attorney today.

With locations in Shelbyville and Frankfort, Kentucky, Robinson Salyers, PLLC, will work with you to gather information immediately about bankruptcy solutions and next steps.

We Help With Debt Collection Actions

Creditors can bring lawsuits for all types of matters, such as:

  • Credit card bills
  • Foreclosures
  • Personal injury claims
  • Driving without insurance
  • Disputes with former business partners
  • Failure to pay property taxes

Too often, people assume they cannot afford to pay an attorney. Don’t make that mistake. We at Robinson Salyers, PLLC, provide cost-effective representation to clients facing creditor lawsuits — which are far more costly in the long run if they are ignored.

If you fail to file an answer, that failure will result in garnishments against your wages or bank accounts, and judgment liens will be filed against any property that you own. We have experienced trial lawyers who are prepared to aggressively defend you against overzealous creditors.

Do Not Give Up; We Can Help

Receiving a notice that you are being sued is very stressful, but it will not simply disappear if you pretend it isn’t happening.
