If a lawsuit has been filed against you by a debt collector, you should not automatically assume that you have no choice but to pay it. The people trying to collect the debt must be able to prove that they own the debt and that you are still responsible for it in order for a lawsuit against you to be successful.
Most people do not understand their rights or defense options in these cases, and many find themselves on the hook for a debt that could have been avoided if the appropriate steps had been taken in their defense. If you are facing a lawsuit over any debt, even if it is a debt you know you once owed, talk to a Baltimore debt collection defense attorney who understands collection laws and can protect your interests.
