Who is Jefferson Capital Systems, LLC?

Jefferson Capital Systems, LLC is a debt or junk debt buyer buys old debt from banks and credit card companies and sues Michigan consumers through its law firm, Berndt, Beach & Associates, LLC. They sue on a lot of DTE lawsuits in Michigan. Jefferson’s lawsuits are usually filed without the proper assignment or title paperwork to prove their case. Most courts will let this slide if you don’t bring it up. I use this absence of proof to settle or eliminate my client’s debts and lawsuits in Michigan Circuit and District Courts. Jefferson is easy to work with and their counsel, Mike Beach is very reasonable and pragmatic.

What names should I look for if Jefferson are suing me?

The main attorneys on debt collection lawsuits for Jefferson are Mike Beach and his law firm, Berndt, Beach & Associates, P.C. These attorneys specialize in suing consumers with debt collection lawsuits. Look for their names on the Summons in your paperwork to confirm the law firm is suing you. I deal with Berndt, Beach all the time and they know I will sue their firm if they break the law.

When you get sued by Jefferson in State court, an answer and counter claim against them is the best approach to eliminating or settling your debt when the facts are there. Usually, Stenger has very little proof of ownership of the specific debt they are suing upon-just general Bill of Sale paper or Affidavits that don’t apply to you. Get your paperwork to us within 21 days of being served and we will provide you a free analysis to help you win.

What does a DNF lawsuit look like?

The basic pleading or lawsuit you will receive with be the same throughout the State of Michigan have really have no basis of fact proving you owe the debt to DNF. There is no proof of Assignment of your specific debt in their Exhibits. In fact, any title or assignment proof fails to show you owe the debt or that they have a right to sue you. Look at the assignments and bill of sale attached to your complaint. It will not have a direct and specific assignment of your debt being sold from the original creditor to DNF.

How to Beat a Jefferson Capital Lawsuit

When you hire us, first we will file a Response or an “Answer” to the Jefferson lawsuit to avoid a default being filed against you. If they get a default against you, they can levy or garnish your bank accounts and paycheck. You want to avoid this at all costs. Otherwise, you lose your case no matter what proof they attached as lawsuit exhibits.

Second, we file a Counter Claim showing the Court that Jefferson did not file or attach the proper paperwork to the lawsuit. The real paperwork is long gone from being bought and sold by different entities and debt buyers. Your counter claim shows the Court that Jefferson has no standing to sue you and therefore they broke the law. You are then entitled to money damages and attorney fees and costs. This will settle lawsuits quickly and will often eliminate the debt against you in any resolution of the case.
