Our Success Stories
Member contacted our office for assistance with an issue he was having with his joint checking account being garnished because of a debt he owed. Member had previously taken out a home equity loan and began to experience financial difficulty after he lost his job and automobile. Member stated that several years ago he had been sent a letter from the lender waiving the balance, but had recently begun to receive debt collection letters for the balance owed. Eventually, his checking account was garnished. Counsel in our office wrote a letter to opposing counsel advising that the couple had filed a claim of exemption alleging joint ownership of the account being garnished, and in an effort to resolve the case made a settlement offer. In response to our letter, opposing counsel accepted the settlement offer. Savings for Member, $10,370.03.
Member contacted our office for assistance with an issue related to her tax refund. Member’s tax refund was issued to an Electronic Return Originator (ERO). Member was never provided with the refund check and was told on several different occasions that a check had been mailed to her. Our attorney wrote a letter to the bank demanding that they send the refund to Member via overnight mail delivery, or we would file suit to retrieve funds for Member. Further, we would contact the Internal Revenue Service to let them know that the ERO had failed to provide Member with her tax refund issued by the IRS. In response to our letter, the opposing party remitted the demanded funds. Recovery for Member, $5,111.00.
Member contacted our office for assistance with an issue she was having with her landlord. Member provided her leasing office with a 60-day notice that she was not going to renew her lease, and vacated the premises in or about October 2019. Member never received a refund of her security deposit, nor a written statement listing the reasons her security deposit was being retained. Our attorney wrote a letter to the property management company citing Georgia Statute regarding the retention of security deposits, and demanded a refund of Member’s security deposit and treble damages. In response to our letter, opposing party full payment of the demanded funds. Recovery for Member, $2,500.00.
