Team at Roston Carlyle Rojas Lawyers specially Varun Gupta, Brendon McKenzie and Maisie Taylor are great professionals with competent and outstanding skills. From the first meeting with Varun Gupta, we got assured that we are with right people and they proved it. No doubt they are most recommendable team of professionals. Throughout the process they kept us updated and were available all the time for any questions or concerns. We will again contact them and recommend to my friends and network.

Mysa was completely competent from start to finish, she seamlessly guided us through the legal process and was very informative, no question was too small. The RCR Lawyers team was there with us from the beginning to the end and helped us achieve closure with a positive result and for that we are extremely grateful.

Upon meeting with Varun, I never doubted that he’s certainly a brilliant solicitor and true enough, with all the things he did for us, he really surpassed our high expectations. He is very responsive in everything and even to a small detail. He is very professional that he would give an honest advice and direct answers to all our questions and enqueries. He never left us especially in a critical situations (yes, there were a lot of circumstances but Varun fixed them for us) but actually, he stayed with us up to the last minute of the day or until to settle everything that we need to do. Thank you Varun for helping us to buy our first home!!!

My partner and I went through these guys for a complicated partner visa case after being referred from a lawyer friend. After being told by other lawyers that it was either easy or impossible, these guys told it like it was, realistic (they also had the same fees as the others). Peter and Shanalee were with us the whole way to provide guidance and 2.5 years later we are happy to receive the news that the partner visa has been granted.Thank you for all of your hard work guys.All the best.

Steps you can take to defend yourself from a debt collector

Defend or lose

You may be subject to a default judgment if you fail to defend yourself from a creditor. Thus,  you should know the defences available to you before deciding whether to contest a demand for repayment of debts

Advice on considering grounds for a defence

Do you owe or is there some discrepancy in the amount, work completed or contract that could lead a court to believe you don't owe them any money or as much as they have claimed? They may not have completed the works, or they may have unfair contract terms that they are relying on to chase the debt. A solid defence needs to be well written, logical and plead the facts correctly or else you risk losing on a technicality or worse, having a default judgment made against you. Get in touch with RCR Lawyers the moment you have been served a claim so we can get started on your defence and potentially counterclaim.

Counterclaim

You have been served, you know you have a defence and you warned the opposing party that if they took this to court, you would go hard against them. Now is time to write your counterclaim for all the damages they have caused you or your company. Get your facts, figures and evidence in order and then this needs to be presented in a clear, concise, chronological order highlighting why the other side actually owes you money and costs for bringing the claim against you. Want an experts help in making a defence and counterclaim? Get in touch today.

Set off

In many disputes, there is money owing both ways and so a set-off can be used to lower the amounts you owe or eliminate the amounts owed entirely. Often times there are set-off clauses or restrictions in most contracts so getting advice on whether this is a worthwhile pursuit in court from expert lawyers is a must to ensure you are not wasting the courts and your own time and money on a frivolous claim with no chance of success. Get in touch today for an obligation-free chat about your prospects of using a set-off defence.
