Rubin Rothman , under Keith H. Rothman an Attorney (N.Y. State bar Registratin number 1419498), obtained a default judgment and bank levy against me with out having ever served me the summons.This Court order was obtained
three years after the State Statute of limitations. I successfully proved this in Court . Through their business association with AAA Attorney Service Co. of N.Y. under licensed Notary, Harvey Tauber (No. 01TA4667012) as C.E.O. regularly used and directed disgraced former Licensed Process server, Andrew Lindauer ( License number 0724538) ( ViolationNo. LL 5084162),( who surrendered his license in a plea deal with The N.Y. City Dept of Consumer Affairs), falsely and knowingly claimed to have served my" Wife Jane" on my behalf. I was divorced and never married to anyone named Jane. My
situation is the rule rather than the exception.
An internet search will show that this is a regular business practice of the individuals and corporations they run or work for. Just as an example: Schuster v. Rubin Rothman, LLC Case 1:12-cv-04854-JG-RER, Zweibel v. Rubin Rothman, LLC Case 1:13-cv-01407- ILG-RML, and Posner v. Rubin Rothman, LLC Case 1:13-cv-01229-FB-RML. Mr. Lindauer had a patter of cite "wives" with the letter J. Look over your paper work. If Tauber notarized it and or Lindauer "served" it you can get the case dismissed/discontinued. If you discover that a bank levy or wage garnishment has been placed against you,
challenge it right away by filing with the Court an Affidavit to Vacate a Default Judgement in a a consumer debt case. Go to
I found mildly amusing that Rubin & Rothman repeatedly claim to have an A+ rating from the B.B.B. When in fact they have several complaints cited against them many of which I've experienced myself. They are not even a member of B.B.B.
This cite will assist the pro per litigant in how to file the appropriate action to defend themselves. Obviously you will have to add or subtract what is relevant to your case and what is not. What will happen next is that an Attorney/"Closer" will represent
Rubin & Rothman in Court. He/She will attempt to settle the debt. DON'T DO IT! You will not see a Judge on the first visit to theCourt. The second time will be a repeat of the first visit. You will be directed to a small conference room with a court Mediator and the Attorney/"Closer for Rubin & Rothman. DO NOT ACCEPT THE SETTLEMENT HE/SHE OFFERS!
At this point the "Closer" for Rubin & Rothman will likely Discontinue the case. In my case he did just that as he bolted from
the Court room refusing to shake my hand. ( All class !). I am now preparing to sue Rubin & Rothman, LLC, the Attorney service that falsely claimed to have "served" my fictional Wife Jane, as well as Capital One who had hired Rubin & Rothman to represent them in the first place. My first two causes of action will be for 1. VIOLATION OF THE FAIR DEBT COLLECTION PRACTICES ACT (FDCPA) 15 U.S.C. 1692 ET.SEQ; 2. VIOLATION OF NYGBL 349.
While every case is different and some people may not feel comfortable representing themselves It never hurts to consult with an Attorney specializing in consumer/debtor rights. While I am an experienced "Pro Per" I am not an attorney and therefore the information I am relating is strictly an account of what I have done and would do personally. You may want to review the cases I have cited. I suggest the web site Docket Alarm. There is a modest fee for each page but I found well worth it. Good luck.
