Bank of America files debt collection lawsuits in all Judicial Districts of the Superior Court of Connecticut, including the Small Claims session.  If you receive a Summons from Bank of America, contact The Woods Law Firm, LLC immediately.  We vigorously defend Bank of America lawsuits and negotiate settlements throughout Connecticut.   


The Woods Law Firm, LLC has over a decade of experience representing clients who have been sued by Bank of America.  We offer affordable, flat fee representation. 

If you have been served with a Summons from Bank of America and the case has not yet been filed, we are often in a position to negotiate a very favorable settlement, typically for a percentage of the balance owed.  

In the event that Bank of America has already filed its case, there are several pleadings that we will file to prevent the case from proceeding to Judgment.  Usually, we will file an Appearance in your case.  This filing accomplishes two objectives: it prevents Bank of America from obtaining a default against you for failure to appear.  It, additionally, prevents Bank of America or its lawyers from contacting you because the Appearance signifies that you are represented by counsel.  Approximately thirty days after filing the Appearance we will file an Answer in the case.  These pleadings afford time in which to decide how best to resolve the case.
