Consumer Litigation

Consumer Litigation Defense from Greenstone Legal Group

For the average American, financial challenges are still an everyday reality in these difficult times. Even with the economy improving, the overall levels of debt nationally are rising every year. With debts including auto loans, credit cards, mortgages, and student loans soaring, the risk of consumer litigation is also rising. If you are one of the millions of Americans facing consumer litigation for unpaid debt, Greenstone Legal group can help.

What is Consumer Debt Litigation?

Creditors have various ways to collect debts, including phone calls, letters, and repossessing of collateral used to secure a debt. When all else fails, litigation is the last resort. Although it can be costly for the creditor, it is an effective option because consumers frequently fail to fight for their rights. Even worse, many people chose not to fight at all and fail to respond. If you have received a summons, it is a serious situation that will worsen by ignoring it, and you need to fight back. With an attorney from Greenstone Legal Group by your side, you will have the best chance to protect both your rights and your property.

Consumer Litigation Defense Process

When a creditor decides to litigate, the first thing they do is send you a summons. This official court document will outline what you need to do, how you need to do it, and the timeframes you need to adhere to.

Receiving a summons can leave you feeling shaken and be incredibly stressful, but you need to stay focused and act quickly. The case against you will move forward with or without your participation. Greenstone Legal group can ensure your rights are represented, and our team will craft and implement an effective defense strategy.

There are a variety of defenses that can be used against creditor lawsuits, including:

  • Failure to file within the statute of limitations
  • Failure to serve the summons properly
  • Failure to document the debt properly
  • Failure to document all payments properly


Once we develop your defense strategy, we will represent you in court and fight for the best outcome possible. You may also have the option of negotiating a settlement out of court, which can occur even after the creditors have initiated a lawsuit against you. We can assist you in deciding whether to mount a defense or negotiate for a settlement, and we are prepared to handle either option for you.
