Attorney Daniel N. Gordon In Eugene Oregon BEWARE OF THIS LAW FIRM

member profile picture

I thought I would post this to warn others about this shady atorney and his law firm. If you ever receive a letter from this attorney make sure you quickly check your local court to make sure he has not filed anything against you. This attorney sent me a letter in the mail stating they had a judgement against me and were now going to garnish my wages. Here is the kicker, they never served me to appear in court, so I had no idea I even had a pending court case. They won the case in default because they never served me, so I never appeared.

After I received this so called judgment I called the court to verify it was indeed an actual judgement and not just a scam. The court verifeid that this attorney supposedly won a judgement against me a few months back. According to court record, this attorney claimed I was served in person at my home address by thier servor on a date about a month prior to the court date. Well, let me assure you that I was never served for anything and in fact on that date that I was supposedly served, I was at work from 6 in the morning and did not get home until after 8 pm as verified by my timecard.

Now unfortunately there is not much I can do about this. According to the Oregon court, I can not fight this improper service on my own. I have to have an attorney draw up papers on this. I have contacted several attorneys and the only way to fight this is to pay several thousand dollars of attorney fees, which of course I can not afford. Had I been properly served, of course I would have shown up in court and tried to work out payment arrangements.

So anyone out there that ever receives a letter from this attorney and his firm, be sure you are warned and know what you are dealing with. They will claim to serve you, but never do it so they can win a default judgement against you. Next thing you know they will send you a writ for garnishing your wages in the mail, eventhough you were not served to appear in court. I also researched this attorney online and found several other complaints about them.

My husband and I have been dealing with Daniel Gordon for a while now. He began garnishment of my husband's paychecks for a debt that isn't even my husband's. When we asked him for proof of this debt, his people refused and said he could only release that information to our attorney. Needless to say, we did not have one because we could not afford one.

We also were not served any papers, so we had no idea of this "debt" until we received the notice for garnishment.

If you get anything from this guy, take out a loan to get a lawyer if you need to! Don't let him rip you off too!

I was wondering if anyone has dealt with this firm I don't know if they are linked with a payday loan or a credit card. They are saying that if I don't contact them within 24 hrs they are going to go to my county and have me served for a immediate recovery on my name and social security.

This guy is a fraud. He sent a letter stating that my husband had an outstanding debt and that if we disagreed to write them immediately for further details; I did and next thing you know my husband has a judgement against him. Now they have tried garnishing my wages; his wages; my bank account; etc. And they won't even work with me to resolve the matter. We shouldn't owe them anything and yet somehow they are fraudulently trying to take our money. This has been going on for two years now! Beware!

There are attorneys who are in the business of suing collection companies such as Daniel Gordon. One in particular is in Spokane.

Wake up, people, and do something other than complain!

Mon, 01/25/2010 - 15:14

I've been writing letters to congressmen, the White House and reporting stuff on Gordon to the Washington Attorney General's office. The Attorney General's office has, at present, 26 complaints on Gordon from 2007 to currently. Start writing everyone you know. When debts reach the statute of limitations that only means the credit card won't come after you, but debt collectors can hound you to the day you die. This needs to change. Most people aren't in debt because they want to be, stuff happens, and with this current economic situation we're all going to be facing problems. Keep complaining, but complain to the right people.

In regards to the above comment about debt collectors being able to hound you "until you die" the solution is simple. After the statute of limitations is up no creditor can take legal action against you nor can an attorney representing them. They can however call you but those are easily stopped as well. All you need to do is PUT IN WRITING to whoever is calling you that you no longer want to recieve calls on the matter. Further calls on that particular account would be a violation of the FDCPA. Mind you, if you have multiple accounts at the same law firm you have to request not to be contacted on each specific account. Please note im not some sidewalk commando that gets on message boards and spouts off comments I know nothing about. I am a debt collector for a living who makes a habit of abiding by the FDCPA.

Sub: #7 Regarding the statue of limitations and collectors hounding you
Thu, 01/28/2010 - 00:01

Regarding the statue of limitations and collectors hounding you until you die... if one collector steps out of the picture the next one will buy up the debt and the whole mess starts again.

So yes, the solution is simple, if it's so, tell them that the debt is "time-barred". But you'll have to tell it to the next and the next and the next.

Before you do anything, however, do your research. When I got a first notice of "we're going to sue you" from a collection agency on an attorney's letterhead I immediately hit the internet looking for laws, etc. and going over all aspects of information in the letter.

I also checked out the attorney and the agency. It's the beauty of the internet. Lots of public records free to those who want to look and download.

As soon as I found the things on the letter that were wrong, and there were many, I immediately sent a complaint to my state's Attorney General's office AND the state bar association. Everything I'd read online about the attorney and collection agency said that these people would not be someone I could work with at any time.

Then all information I had went directly to my attorney who, if the collection attorney tries anything, is willing to step in and work the case. Otherwise he's letting me do the research and is not costing me a thing, which is good because I don't have anything left to give.

Know your rights everyone. Also... there are legal agencies that can help you at minimum or no cost. If you're a senior citizen contact the AARP. There is help out there, but you need to do the work too.

Again, however, write your congressmen/women, attorney generals, everyone. None of tried to get into this trouble. We've been hit with everything from horrific medical bills, divorce, job loss etc. And many of us only had cards that were around $1000, and are now ballooned up to $10,000. No matter if the debt becomes time-barred (statue of limitations) debt collectors can still come at you. This should be stopped, but until we all start to raise our voices and stand up for our rights to try and get our lives together we'll be hounded... until the day we die. Whether by debt collectors who adhere to the law or not.

Something new to look at folks.

I've got a company that attached a new debt to my credit report. It states that it's connected with an old credit card, but the number is wrong so it gives my attorney some ammo. But... the dates of reporting are current which means the company is trying to "re-age" the debt so that it stays on the books for another 7 years. (debts stay on your credit report for 7 years, that's why the collection agencies keep coming back).

This is where having an attorney (believe me, try and find someone to work with you) can come in handy. If I say that the company is trying to re-age the debt, it means I'm acknowledging that the debt (which has an unknown number) IS indeed mine, which it is not.

Keep researching folks, you can never have enough information.
