  1. You're so knowledgeable. It's helpful having a sounding board. My car is definitely not high value and won't be paid off until next year. It was Cobb county. The judge was definitely more compassionate than I was expecting, even in the other cases I was overhearing . I used to work in a different court and I know the attitude of the judge can make a huge difference in pro se cases. My only concern was when he was like " I'm not sure you'll get better outcome in arbitration" but then he went on to get into the disability questions basically stating to the attorney that I couldn't be garnished
  2. That makes sense. It wasn't actually Goodman in court, but another attorney under him. There was a lady he was speaking with as well. They went out into the hall to talk after I mentioned the MTC and it looks like he tried to find a different contract. I'm guessing he called the office during that time. The order is entered. I just checked. So I apply for JAMS and hope for the best at this point, correct ? Thanks again for all the responses. It's been an emotional day. Things are kind of falling apart as they have been for a while. When the judge asked me about the disability stuff, he e
  3. Emmett Goodman. They all just kept acting like I was stupid for not taking the payment plan consent judgement. Maybe I am but I didn't see why I should make it easier on them. The attorney was snotty enough to go through with arbitration just to spite me it seems even if it ends up costing them more.
  4. Today I had court in Georgia after being sued by Midland for $948. They attempted to sue me in April 2018 in the wrong county and then served me in the right one January 2019. In the time between, I attempted to contact Midland and sent their attorney a letter from doctor stating I'm disabled and it's unlikely to change with no collectable income. They were unsympathetic, despite what is written on their own website. Following the advice I read here, I comprised a demand letter and motion to compel arbitration. I handed it to the attorney in the hallway this morning. He claimed not to have a
  5. Thank you so much for the advice. I replied a little bit more in detail above but I will definitely try that.
  6. Thank you so much for your response . I just got back into town from visiting my grandmother and checked the mail. I had 3 letters from Bankruptcy attorneys referencing the case number filed against me. I attempted to look it up online but there is no information yet. That's really good to hear about Midland. I will definitely call the clerk's office Monday morning. After reading some of the horror stories on here I was just a little afraid and apprehensive about what to do. I'm really ready to do whatever I can to put all of this behind me as I never thought that this would be my life before
  7. Hello everyone ! I'm going to paraphrase the long story that brought me here. Basically , I was in a car accident a few years ago. Failed spine surgeries and lost just about everything while waiting on workers comp . I'm still unable to work full time and I receive the weekly checks of what was a low paying government job. This was my first job out of college . I had a few credit card debts that I worked hard to pay off but in the worst of it , they got charged off. I kept hoping I could return to work and settle it with the bottom feeders. I've had to move twice in the last year. My c
