Rewind: How to Reverse a Judgment by Midland Funding


Unfortunately by the time I meet with many clients they already have a judgment against them by one of the debt buyers like Midland Funding.  Wages are being garnished or bank accounts attacked.  In this episode I answer two questions that were submitted by readers/listeners on how you can reverse a judgment that you didn’t know anything about and what can be done about a judgment entered against a married couple when the debt was only the husband’s prior to marriage.

Week in Review

In this week’s Week in Review segment I discuss how sometimes half the battle is just showing up.  I had an interesting experience at a Midland Funding trial where I showed up, Midland’s attorney showed up, and the judge was there and the judge dismissed the case because Midland’s attorney didn’t bring a court reporter.  I have no idea why they would need to bring a court reporter because typically in Arizona courts the proceedings are audio recorded, but this day the judge wanted a court reporter.  And because they didn’t have one, the court would not allow them to continue.

Persistence pays off, and sometimes, just showing up will carry the day!
