I got sued by a debt buyer and I didn't know what to do or how to handle this so I started doing internet searches for my options everywhere I turned was one name that stood out over the rest and it was John watts I was skeptical at first but I talked with his office and was told John would contact me on phone at 430 pm and he called right on the money after talking with him I felt lot more relived he told me a few options I could do and I thought about it over night and called him back and hired him to take on the Debt buyer and that's the best thing I could have done I didn't get contacted by the debt buyer again John he took care of it all took a few weeks to go through the process but I won my case and the negative information was removed from my credit report I would recommend John to anyone who is getting sued by a debt buyer he really knows how to handle them

Upon receiving a summons that I was being sued by a Debt Collector, I felt a sense of hopelessness. After a few days of self pity I took to the internet to see if there was anything I could do. I intently watched Mr. Watts YouTube video and was impressed with his knowledge and demeanor. He outlined what to expect in this situation and the available options. I was convinced that I had to take action and called his office and spoke with a kind lady Carolyn. She set up a free phone consultation in which John patiently explained what could be done and that there was hope, real hope. There was a genuine kindness and zero pressure.I was convinced John was the only option for me and hiring him turned into one of the best decisions I've ever made. He kept me updated every step of the way and the outcome I was hoping for was completed even faster than I'd hoped for. I would recommend this man to any and all to stand up to a debt collector company.
Thank you John for lifting this burden.

Due to a loss of income, our home was in foreclosure. We reached out to several organizations for help, all of which wasted the remaining time we had to take action against the foreclosure. The day before the sale, we were frantic, hopeless and helpless until I remembered I had spoken to John Watts in the past and recieved advice on how to fight an unfair lawsuit a credit card company had filed against us (we won the case with his advice)! John got back with me within the hour regarding our foreclosure and within two hours, he was able to save our home! We couldnt be more relieved and grateful for all he and his outstanding staff did for us! Dont waste valuable time trying to fix these types of problems on your own. John is exceptional at what he does. Words cannot express our appreciation!

I would hire this law firm in a second, since they saved our house from foreclosure. A top notch no nonsense legal team that will help you fight the battle, but you must buy-in to the process. We almost waited too long to yell for help, so park your pride and reputation at the door, dive in and listen carefully to what they have to say. I have listed some important touch points below that will give you the best chance to work with them to win the battle that you are facing and overwhelmed with like we were. They don't guarantee results, but their track record speaks for it's self..
* These guys are really good.
* Find help before it's too late
* Ditch your pride.. take action..
* Hire Watts & Herring sooner than later
* Do as they say.. follow the process
* Don't procrastinate.. do it..
* They don't sugarcoat anything
* You better be thick skinned..
* You are fighting for your survival..
* They will help you understand the rules that many lenders ignore and take unfair advantage of borrowers.
* Most important.. Take Action!!!
Thankfully our son found Watts & Herring on Google under AlabamaConsumer.com. They were terrific in helping us dodge a foreclosure bullet. Their people, process, intensity and guidance are terrific. Would recommend them all day long.

After I modified my mortgage and made my first two payments, my mortgage company up and decided I was in default, stopped accepting my payments, and moved to foreclose on my home. As a single mom with two small children, panic-stricken does not begin to explain what I was feeling. I had already fought for a year to get the modification, and felt I had upheld my end of the bargain by making my payments on time as promised in the agreement I signed. Why am I in default? Can they do this? Every phone call to the mortgage company provided a different nonsense response/reason for what was happening, and something just did not feel right. So I reached out for names, the first two of which left me hanging and did not return my calls. I was already feeling ashamed and embarrassed, I needed help, and after two attorneys completely shunned me, I began to lose hope. I started to think maybe the mortgage company was right and I had messed up somewhere. I almost gave up. Then an attorney friend, who had gone up against John in court a time or two, highly recommended him to me. I have not had the opportunity to meet John as of the time of this review, but his paralegal, Randi, is amazing to say the least. Had I not contacted his office, then watched his RESPA video which gave me the tools I needed to fight back, I would have lost my home. The mortgage company's attorney set a foreclosure sale date. But due to the tools provided in that video, and the help and guidance willingly given by Randi, the foreclosure sale was canceled. My issues are certainly not over, and I have a strong suspicion the time will come when I will need to file suit to get the answers I need. But when that time comes, I am confident in the abilities of John and his staff, and excited to know they are on my team. They are truly dedicated to helping and it shows.

I received a notice i had been sued by a debt collector. I was so upset and had no idea what i was going to do. I found John through a search on google. I am so glad i did! He has returned every call and every text. I felt my situation was hopeless but after talking with John for just a few minutes i realized i did have hope. There was a light at the end of my tunnel. My case has now been settled and i am so relieved and will be forever grateful.

My sister and I were involved in a legal matter in the state of Alabama. We both reside in different states outside of Alabama, so we had the dilemma of finding an attorney licensed in the state of Alabama. After reading several reviews from clients, we decided to step out on faith and contacted John Watts. John and his staff understood our situation and created for us a sense of trust. He reviewed our legal documents and made recommendations based on our personal circumstances. He was patient with us and ensured we had a complete understanding of the process. John was able to bring closure to the matter in a reasonable timeframe with positive results. I would highly recommend John Watts to anyone seeking legal representation.

John and his staff are very professional, efficient, knowledgeable, and caring people. Not knowing anything about Alabama laws my family and I went online looking for foreclosure attorney's and John Watts stood out from the other firms. We told them our situation and were advised on how to move forward. Being Minnesotans we did not realize how different the laws are in Alabama. For the past few weeks we have been advised on what to do and how to present ourselves with this legal matter. My family and I would like to thank you John Watts and staff for your expertise on foreclosure legalities. We would also like to thank you for your care and concerns while we went through this battle, and for sticking with us and seeing this thing through. We appreciate all the advice that was given, the explanations of legal documents, making sure we understood the documents and Alabama laws, who to contact and what to say and ask for at point of contact. We thank you for the acceleration of your knowledge base as we only had a short window of time. I feel your staff went above and beyond the call of duty in assisting my family. I believe if we had not contacted John Watts it would have been very detrimental to our family. Mr. Watts you and your staff are outstanding! I have family in Alabama and if at anytime anyone of them have legal matters in your expertise's, I am definitely referring them to your firm. We thank you that this matter was resolved in a timely manner and for staff availability. From the first call to the last call staff was available in a timely manner, messages were returned usually the same day, and there was never a time the attorney did not reach out to us to make sure everything was going smoothly. We are truly grateful for the team at John Watts, you are the Best.
God Bless, and Thank you

My review is lengthy but I want people to know if you find yourself in a situation like mine, there is help. I received a letter in the mail I was being sued by a debt collector. My heart just sank when I read what was happening. I went through many sleepless nights wondering what to do and how I would get myself out of the situation. There were letters from lawyers in my mailbox offering help and I started to call them for help but I thought it was strange they knew what was happening to me. I thought could this be a scam? I decided to search on Google the contents of my collection letter and Attorney John Watts website came up with all the information I was looking for. I started reading everything he had listed and even did a YouTube search on him and found much more information. After my research, I decided to fill out the Contact Info form on Attorney Watts website. I was contacted by John with 1 hour!!!! Attorney John Watts and I had a phone call that afternoon and discussed my situation and I cannot tell you how relieved I was after our conversation. I felt like a ton of bricks were lifted off my shoulders!! We ended the phone call with a plan and I actually felt positive for the first time in a long time. I’ve never worried about my case, John and his staff always sent me updates to make sure I knew everything that was happening with my case. I’m happy to say it was a positive outcome and I’m very relieved all of this is over! I would recommend John to anyone. He is so willing to help you in any way he can. He treats you like a friend, not like a client.

When frustration and unbelief became a part of my everyday life for about six months in 2015 because of a debt collections issue, Mr. John Watts helped me fight a giant, and help restore me with a peace of mind by reassuring me that not all was lost that even I could make a stand against a giant. I was blessed to have an excellent attorney such as Mr. Watts. He is a phenomenal attorney, who will go that extra mile to help. I was very impressed with the excellent service from start to finish.
