I admit it. I am amazed at Midland Funding. They file an awful lot of lawsuits. At least, they do in Sacramento County. At my last count, they had filed over 50 lawsuits in Sacramento County alone in March, 2009. They were all filed by one attorney, Erica Brachfeld. For one person’s perspective on Ms. Brachfeld, visit Bud Hibbs’ website. (For general information, visit Bud’s website as well.)
I am starting to get calls on these cases and they are defendable. Ms. Brachfeld has no information other than a piece of paper. She files these lawsuits and hopes, maybe even prays, for default judgments. I am starting to get sanctions awards against her and expect this to continue.
If you have been sued by Ms. Brachfeld in California or by Midland Funding, contact my office for a free consultation on your possible defenses.
UPDATE: If you have been sued by FIA Card Services, the same thing applies to you. This is another outfit for which Ms. Brachfeld is filing a large number of lawsuits on a regular basis.
