Who Is Mullooly, Jeffrey, Rooney & Flynn?

As noted above, Mullooly, Jeffrey, Rooney & Flynn is a law firm, based out of Syosset, New York. Their area expertise is in engaging in debt collection work. That primarily means that banks and other companies who have accounts with debts outstanding will have them sue the consumers who owe those debts. The firm files, literally, thousands of lawsuits each year, on behalf of companies such as:

  • Bank of America
  • Asset Acceptance, LLC
  • Brookhaven Hospital
  • FIA Card Services
  • Unifund CCR, LLC

As with many aggressive law firms seeking to obtain legal judgments against consumers who allegedly owe money, Mullooly, Jeffrey, Rooney & Flynn has had its share of complaints with regard to aggressive tactics, or continuing to threaten legal action against some consumers despite the fact that consumers have proof that they no longer owe the debt. Accordingly, it is worthwhile to push back against a lawsuit filed by Mullooly, Jeffrey, Rooney & Flynn. When you do push back, even if you think you still owe a particular debt, you may be able to settle for a reduced amount, or get the case dismissed against you altogether.

Do I Need a Lawyer to Respond? Not Necessarily

We know that lawyers are very expensive. It is such a specialized service that lawyer fees are sometimes out of reach for those who already are financially strapped. But, not to worry. You can respond to the Mullooly, Jeffrey, Rooney & Flynn lawsuit without having to pay legal fees.

SoloSuit makes it easy to win a debt collection lawsuit.

The crucial thing you need to know about responding to a debt collection lawsuit is that there are essentially three things you need to do:

  1. Answer the lawsuit. That means that you need to specifically “admit” or “deny” each numbered paragraph in the Mullooly, Jeffrey, Rooney & Flynn complaint that you receive. Remember, if you are not absolutely certain of the truth of anything in the complaint – like whether Mullooly, Jeffrey, Rooney & Flynn has the authority to represent the creditor company, or that you owe a certain amount – then you want to “deny” or at least say “I don 't know” in response to those number paragraphs.
  2. Assert Affirmative Defenses against the lawsuit. Not only do you want to respond to what the Mullooly, Jeffrey, Rooney & Flynn lawsuit says, but you also can – as part of your Answer – state why you do not owe the amount the complaint says you owe. It could be because you have proof that the debt has been resolved, or that you are not the account holder of the account in debt, or that Mullooly, Jeffrey, Rooney & Flynn waited too long to sue and, thus, they are outside the statute of limitations.
  3. File the lawsuit in the allotted time. Finally, you need to make sure that the Court receives your Answer and Affirmative Defenses in the time allowed. Each state has different rules on how long you have to respond.

Now, you might think that the above does not look as “easy as 1-2-3.” It is not as hard as you think, and it is much easier if you get the help of SoloSuit.
