This is a course on creating discovery to give the debt collectors in litigation, and also how to answer discovery in debt litigation. It comes with some sample sets of discovery and answers from both sides of a debt lawsuit.
Below you will find a list of videos and documents that make up the class. After working your way through these materials, and this course is approximately two hours long, you should be able to create discovery requests appropriate to your case - and should know what to expect from the other side. You will need to do some thinking about which materials to use, and you may need to do some research to hone the discovery to your own issues, but this should help you create the discovery materials you need to beat the debt collector.
