I found victor after a yellow pages search after I found a garnishment to my bank. I did a little research and realized that an old account had sued me in court and got a default judgment against me. Even though the court had awarded a judgment, Victor still worked with the opposing counsel to come to a reasonable settlement.
My advice to anyone facing old collection calls. CONTACT VICTOR WANDRES ASAP. Do not wait like I did. It could save you a lot of money if you contact him as the calls start.
I am more pleased with Victor's services than I can express here. I didn't find him until the day that I had to go to court, His assistant said if I had notified him in time, he could have helped me. Nevertheless, he contacted me and sent me very valuable information. The prepaid lawyers that we have did not help me nearly as much as he did. Victor believed me when I said the Plaintiff lied and he won my case. I will thank God every time I think about what he did. I wish that he was licensed in other states so that I could recommend him to more family and friends. He is for the people. It's about time.
Victor met all our needs and more. You can tell he has a passion for law and protecting consumer rights. He is very technical but has the ability to explain everything.
And yes, we won!
I was unpleasantly surprised by a bank garnishment on payday, which resulted not only in all my husband's money for supporting our family being drained from his accounts, but also my minor son's earnings from his part time job. An unscrupulous attorney had obtained (using false information) a judgment against me over five years ago. Even though I replied to the initial papers served by the courts, my request for proof of the debt was never answered, and a summary judgment was awarded to the plaintiff. The explanation on the paperwork led me to believe that my response would stop any further proceedings until proof of the validity of the debt was provided. I was wrong, and I was devastated that someone could just seize all our money in one fell swoop by waving an old court document around the bank's garnishment office. (Apparently Oklahoma law is very favorable to predatory debt collectors and their attorneys) I felt violated and became physically ill worrying about how we were going to pay our bills or even buy groceries, much less buy birthday gifts for two of our kids that month. I frantically began searching for answers and help, and that's when I found Victor R. Wandres on the Internet. Through our emails over a weekend and into the next week, sometimes even late at night, he helped guide me through the process of proving to the court that the money belonged to family other than me. He even encouraged me to focus on the issues that would help me win my case rather than frantically chasing after information that would be of no use in getting the money back. I learned more through this process than I can even begin to cover here, but know that there are attorneys who make their living by collecting on old junk debt, valid or not. There are few like Mr. Wandres who are there to help consumers, and I am grateful for his assistance. In my case, the judge ordered all the monies be refunded to the account owners. I don't believe the outcome would have been so favorable if it weren't for the help I received from Mr. Wandres. Just contact him BEFORE you try to handle things on your own and make a bigger mess like I did.
I called Victor Wandres when I got notice I was being sued by Midland. Even though I could not afford to hire Victor, he gave me great advice on how to answer the summons. I took his advice to heart and wrote the letter to the Court Clerk in answer to the summons, faxed a copy of the filed letter and Midland decided to drop the lawsuit. Victor went above and beyond in helping me even when I could not afford to hire him.
Mr. Wandres handled my situation very effectively and in a timely manner. He got the results I needed. I recommend his services to anyone dealing with a debt collection company.
From the beginning to current, Victor has been great. He has been patient with collecting needed documentation, and follows up with phone calls. He really cares about his clients, and wanting to help them through rough times., Its great to know that he is on my side.
"Thank you Victor",
My wife and daughter were in a car accident and they took great of us through the process. We had issues with our car that would not have been resolved if it were not for their help. I would highly recommend them.
Mr. Wandres did a great job listening to my problem, taking the appropriate action to solve the problem, and solving my legal issue. He did it in an efficient and cost effective manner. I would highly recommend Mr. Wandres to others who may need legal help.
Victor was great will use him again in the future if the need comes up
