You after beating Glasser and Glasser in court ^^

Summary: Are you being sued by Glasser and Glasser for a debt? SoloSuit can help you take a stand and win in court.

You don't recognize the number, so you send the call straight to voicemail. Their message reveals that they're calling from Glasser and Glasser about your outstanding debt. Now, you cringe every time the phone rings, worried it's yet another call from a debt collector aggressively pursuing their debt.

Is there a way out? Are these calls just a scam? When will the calls finally stop? Don't panic. This guide will help you beat Glasser and Glasser and alleviate the stress that comes from frequent debt collection calls.

Is Glasser and Glasser a legitimate company?

Unfortunately, Glasser and Glasser (or G&G) are legit. G&G is a class-action and personal injury law firm based in Virginia, and the firm also specializes in third-party debt collection. This position can mean that they represent a diverse range of clients, so the phone calls you receive can relate to debts of any variety.

What to do if Glasser and Glasser calls you

Repeated phone calls can stress you out and interrupt your day. Persistent debt collectors can even call you at work, presenting an unwanted distraction that you can live without. Thankfully, there's a path forward.

If you're receiving calls from G&G, here's a strategy to beat them:

Know your rights

First, know your rights. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has established policies that protect consumers against aggressive debt collectors, prohibiting such practices as:

  • Calling prior to 8:00 a.m. or after 9:00 p.m.
  • Threatening extreme measures such as violence or arrest
  • Calling multiple times on the same day
  • Speaking with your family members about your debt
  • Impersonating a lawyer
  • Continuing to contact you after you send a cease-and-desist letter
  • Contacting you regarding a debt you do not owe (or have already paid)
  • Declining requests for debt validation

Currently, G&G has nine complaints on the Better Business Bureau website, most of which relate to billing and collections in some way.

If you believe that G&G has violated the above terms, you can report them to the FTC online platform or by calling the FTC at 877-382-4357. You can also report them using the CFPB website or by calling 855-411-2372.

Ask questions

If you receive a call from Glasser and Glasser, try to ask questions to get more information. Start by asking:

  • The debt collector's name
  • The contracting company's contact information
  • G&G's mailing address
  • Details about the debt

Most importantly, try to learn what they expect you to do to resolve the situation.

Admit nothing

Do not admit ownership of the debt. Even if the debt turns out to be legitimate, accepting responsibility can waive your right to fight the debt or negotiate a better payment.

Similarly, do not give out any personal or financial information over the phone. Legitimate debt collectors will already have this data, and this can help you avoid being scammed.

Send a Debt Validation Letter to Glasser and Glasser

As a consumer, it's your right to obtain validation of your debt. Send them a Debt Validation Letter asking them to provide written confirmation of your debt. They will send you a document that includes:

  • The original debt figure
  • The amount you've paid
  • The remaining balance
  • Additional fees
  • Information about the creditor

Once you receive this document, you'll have 30 days to dispute the debt or to ask for more information about the original creditor.

Keep everything in writing

Above all, ensure that you keep every piece of mail you receive from Glasser and Glasser. This record-keeping will ensure that they adhere closely to federal guidelines, and it can also help you keep careful records that you can later show a lawyer.

Start repaying

Assuming the debt is valid, you may be able to start repaying. If you're unable to pay the debt in full, you may want to consult a lawyer regarding your next moves, but you'll eventually need to clear the debt to clear your name with the credit bureau.

What if Glasser and Glasser take me to court?

Unfortunately, some debts aren't easy to resolve, resulting in a lawsuit. If this happens, you can still request your debt validation as above and prepare your response. SoloSuit can help you with this by guiding you through the answering process.

Don't miss your court date. Failing to physically appear on the specified date results in a default judgment, giving G&G the right to garnish your wages to pay the debt that they originally quoted. Don't ignore your case against Glasser and Glasser; you can beat them by responding in time.

Respond to a lawsuit against Glasser and Glasser by following these three steps:

  1. Answer each claim listed in the Complaint document from Glasser and Glasser. Keep in mind that most attorneys recommend that you deny as many of the claims as possible. This will strengthen your case and require more work for Glasser and Glasser to prove their claims.
  2. Include your affirmative defenses. Your Answer document should include a section where you list all the legal reasons that Glasser and Glasser does not have a case against you—these are known as your affirmative defenses. One common affirmative defense is that the debt may be past the statute of limitations (time period in which a debt is valid to sue) in your state.
  3. File your Answer with the court and send a copy to Glasser and Glasser. SoloSuit can help you file an Answer in all 50 states.
