Looking for a California Civil Attorney who can help dismiss a Bench warrant on my personal name, from Failing to Appear for a Debtors Examination. Please respond only if you are a California based attorney and/or can help me with legal advice in California. The details of the case in brief: A debt collector sued the company that I was an officer for an Accounts payable Collections issue. The case was filed on the corporation name and then the collections attorney somehow added my name in as "Authorized Contact" later on for debtors examination in front of the judge and served me at my home address. The lawsuit / the collections is on the corporation and I have no ties with it anymore or even when the suit was filed. And since it was on the company name primarily I ignored the summons and did not appear in the court. Few days back I received another letter from the collections attorney at my residential address saying that an arrest warrant has been issued on my name and I have to post a bail and contact their law firm. I looked up the court records for that date and the judge ordered a bench warrant on the corporation name and my name. I need help with dismissing the bench warrant on my name and getting my personal name off the collections as I have no liability for it personally and I was just an employee of the company / one of the officer at that time. Looking for an attorney who can work with me in my budget or assist me in clearing my name and dismissing the warrant. I would be able to file the paperwork as necessary based on the advice given.

Client is suing the restraining order applicant for damages because they believe they could convince a jury he or she maliciously lied. (One of the reasons restraining orders are so casually abused is that exploiters have no fear of consequence.)Most of these counts will probably apply: abuse of process, fraud, false light, defamation, and intentional infliction of emotional distress. Must go to the Superior Courthouse and file a summons and complaint (lawsuit), as well as pay a filing fee. Request a jury trial on complaint. Serve the restraining order applicant through employing a process server or local law officer. May require submitting additional briefs—to stand a good chance of inducing the restraining order applicant to reconsider his or her course of action. Responsive communication with the defendant will be through the court, your lawyer, or the defendant’s lawyer.
