My question involves collection proceedings in the State of: California
I have received a summons for a credit collection case. I would like to defend my case via in pro per. With attorney fees, interest and principal, the balance due exceeds the small claims court monetary limit. Since I am not a lawyer I am seeking advice regarding how to get up to speed on representing myself. To start out I have found Nolo publication “Win Your Lawsuit” and “Creditor Remedies & Debtors Rights” a conference in San Francisco with lawyers in the collections industry. Legal advice regarding the best way to approach this issue would be greatly appreciated.
