That will depend on how you handle the Magistrate Court Lawsuit. If you elect to defend yourself without an attorney, you will have to go to Magistate Court to defend yourself against the creditor's claims. Although past experience cannot serve as a guarantee, our experience defending other people in similar situations is you will not have to go to Magisrate Court when you hire an attorney. The attorney will attend the court hearing on your behalf.
By hiring us, you will avoid the inconvenience of calling off work and the stress of appearing in Magistrate Court. The creditor has trained attorneys representing it, and so should you.
IF YOU INTEND TO REPRESENT YOURSELF based on what you read online via a forum or other website information, please be aware that it is common for the creditor to appeal the Magistrate Court Lawsuit if it loses and you would have to continue your defense at the Pennsylvania Court of Common Pleas. Also, please be aware that how a person defends against a collection lawsuit in another State (not Pennsylvania) does not mean it will work in Pennsylvania.
We offer a one-time low flat fee to represent you from start to finish in the Magistrate Court Lawsuit. There are no hidden fees. We have over 10 years experience helping people obtain real debt relief.
