Debt Settlement Agreement Reduces Client’s Balance to 25% of Alleged Amount

We recently represented a marketing salesman in Franklin County Municipal Court. His case pertained to $13,500 and he had been harassed by Midland Funding, a debt buyer, in several ways – multiple rude phone calls and improper conduct. We were able to settle this case out of court.

Our defense focused on the following:

  • Midland Funding did not have the proper documentation to prove that it owned the account,
  • The original creditor could have transferred the account into a trust, which was used for collateral for certain securities, and
  • Midland Funding lacked the proper documentation about the alleged balance

We filed motions and responses that led to two hearings by Court, and the case resulted in a debt settlement agreement. The case was resolved for less than 25% of the alleged balance payable in monthly installments over 24 months.
