Same happened to me. Same Law Firm, same state, Springfield District Court. I responded to the claim immediately and heard nothing from the law firm within the 60 days prior to the court date. At hearing, attorney claimed to be representing a client, citibank, and the magistrate accepted that without question. Fact is, the attorney exemption, defined in the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) was repealed, and that Law Firm is a debt collection agent. I am now trying to organize a class action suite against LGW, P.C. or find if one has been initiated and with which law firm.
