Midland Funding LLC recently dismissed its $13,0000.00 lawsuit against a Tulsa consumer after the consumer hired Paramount Law. When the Tulsa consumer was served with a Summons, she contacted Paramount Law to help her assert her rights. We got involved and requested information from Midland’s attorneys, Love Beal and Nixon. Midland Funding LLC immediately dismissed the lawsuit.

If the attorney that is assisting you cannot provide you with solid answers to the above questions, look elsewhere for help.

Our philosophy is a bit different. We make debt buyers like Midland Funding follow the laws of evidence. In order to win its lawsuit, Midland Funding must prove it has the right to collect it. To do this, it must show an unbroken, valid chain of assignment from the original creditor to Midland. To try do this, Midland Funding generally will only provide a bill of sale as their “proof” of the ownership of your account. However, the bill of sale is a generic document that never mentions the debt at issue, and therefore does not prove anything about any account that Midland Funding may have purchases. Instead, the bill of sale generally refers to an exhibit with the list of accounts sold — which is never attached. At best, Midland Funding may produce a single line printed from a spreadsheet. Many times, however, they will not even produce that.
