In our initial client interview we noticed that Curtis O Barnes debt collection lawfirm had violated the Rosenthal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act when it brought suit against our client in the wrong venue. One phone call later: case dismissed. Also, we got the agent on the phone to admit that they barely filed in time to beat the four-year statute of limitations. BUT since then the four-year deadline has passed. They cannot re-file the lawsuit after dismissing. Our client is free!
