Hello folks and thank you for joining me for another episode of the ADR-NOW! Internet Radio Webinar.  I am your host, Anthony Johnson.

In this Webinar, we will talk about electronic discovery (e-discovery) and its importance to your FDCPA request from an original creditor or 3rd party debt collector.  Today, all litigants have a duty to request and disclose responsive electronic evidence in their cases.  Whether your case is small or large, or whether you are a consumer, sole practitioner or a member of a large firm, discovery issues relating to ESI will have to be addressed and resolved.

In fact, I have witnessed a shift in tactics by original creditors and third party debt collectors in their responses to requests pursuant to the FDCPA to furnish contracts that would capture the signature of a presumptive debtor in question for investigation.  The responses I have been seeing are now stating that because you may have applied for the particular credit over the phone or  online, they cannot provide you with the documents you request.  THIS IS NOT TRUE!

ESI includes, email, spreadsheets, word processing documents, audio, video, or any content in a digital format.  For more information about ESI and how it may relate to your situation, contact: A. Johnson & Associates, LLC, 888-502-0586; www.adr-now.com; or ajohnson@adr-now.com.
