RECENT VICTORY: US EQUITIES $12,590.00 DEFAULT JUDGMENT IN NEW YORK VOLUNTARILY VACATED AND LAWSUIT DISMISSED DUE TO IMPROPER SERVICE

Our client recently (2017) discovered a garnishment on his bank account entitled "LEGAL ORDER DEBIT". Upon further investigation, the client discovered a default judgment had been entered against him in the New York City Civil Court, Kings County in 2010 by debt buyer U.S. Equities Corp. 

After a brief consultation, the client retained our firm and our office immediately filed an Order to Show Cause with the Court. Our firm successfully showed that our client lived in Florida when the Summons & Complaint was allegedly served in New York. 

The parties entered into a Stipulation whereby, US Equities Corp. voluntarily vacated the default judgment, discontinued the case against our client and returned all garnished funds to our client.
