Debt Defense in New York City: Proper Lawsuit Notification

A consumer must be notified that a lawsuit is being filed through “proper service.” Per New York law, there are three ways to constitute proper service, generally;


·     Summons delivered to you personally

·     Summons delivered to someone at you home/business, followed by a mailing

·     Summons posted to your door, followed by a mailing

We are aware of these abuses and other tactics the collections agencies use and will provide all possible defenses to stop them and protect your rights.
