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


Tariq Law, P.C. has been a steadfast advocate for clients in debt collection defense cases for nearly a decade. Our areas of focus include illegal service of court summons (often referred to as "sewer service"), debt collection harassment, and a myriad of other financial matters. We frequently assist individuals who have been victimized by debt collectors that improperly serve them, exploiting the lack of court oversight to secure default judgments. Our firm is intimately familiar with these abuses and the various tactics collection agencies employ. We are committed to deploying all possible defenses to halt these actions and safeguard your rights.
