I had a corporate credit card and a corporate credit line in my name from Capital One that the company I owned stopped paying in 2009 when the business closed. I hadn't heard a peep from Capital One for several years even at the old address until I was forwarded a regular letter sent via USPS from a judge. The letter wasn't sent registered or in any special way. How does the judge even know I received this letter? The letter informed me I'm being sued by Capital One. The statute of limitations in the state where the company was located is 6 years. I now live and work in a different state with a limitation of 3 years. The statue of limitations would be expired in my current state of residency. Can Capital One sue me in my old state?
I would like to know which corporate debt is referenced in the lawsuit. Do I give up any rights by contacting the clerk and asking for details. How much information if any should I give the clerk?
Does anyone have settlement experience on a corporate account being settled personally by Capital One? What percentage and length of payments should I target?
I'm leaning towards hiring a lawyer to represent me. When I do, do I hire a lawyer for the area where I'm being sued or from the area where I currently live and work?
If I do need to hire an attorney, how is the best way to source one in the metro Atlanta area? I want a fighter. I could make settlement offers without an attorney.

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
