If you have been served with a Summons from American Express, it is very important to not ignore it since there is often limited time to respond and failing to do so may result in a default judgment. In some instances, after receiving a Summons from American Express, it is possible to negotiate a settlement for a percentage of the balance owed.
In the event an initial settlement is not possible or not desired, there are several pleadings that we can file to delay the progression of the case to afford additional time in which to decide how best to resolve the case. Most commonly, we can file a Notice of Appearance and Demand for Complaint, and, upon receipt of the Complaint (if it has not been served with the Summons) an Answer and Affirmative Defenses. These filings will prevent the case from progressing to a Default Judgment. They have the added benefit of preventing American Express or its lawyers from contacting a Defendant directly because the Notice of Appearance signifies that the Defendant is represented by counsel.
We offer a case evaluation, during which we will review the Summons and Complaint and determine the best course of action to take, tailored to your individual circumstances. To take advantage of this service contact us today!
