The Law Office of Michael P. Forbes, PC is proud to announce that Attorney Michael P. Forbes was recently successful in defending a case against the credit card giant, American Express. The company had sued his client for an overdue balance, despite the fact that their own documents did not support the claim. Rather, American Express' records showed that the overdue balance was erroneous. Even so, they refused to back down and proceeded to move forward with the case. Fortunately, Mr. Forbes was able to present a compelling case to an arbitration panel—which unanimously agreed that American Express was in the wrong. As a result, his client was awarded in excess of $19,000 and The Law Office of Michael P. Forbes was able to walk away with a victory.
While the case is now under appeal, our firm is confident that the decision will stand. Mr. Forbes always approaches his practice with the philosophy that the individual deserves their day in court, which is exactly what he told his client when they were being unlawfully pursued by American Express' collections department for more than a year. Although the company did not budge until their flaws were brought to light in a court of law, Mr. Forbes never faltered in his pursuit for justice. For decades, he has represented clients against the corporate "Goliaths"—be they collection agencies, banks or credit reporting agencies—who have tried to violate his clients' rights without consequence, so he has quickly learned that it takes unrelenting determination to win a case of this nature.
