To whom it may concern,
My name is Aimee Lunney. Myself and my husband Christiaan Lunney have been first time customers of your firm. This email is to share with you what an outstanding experience we had working with Noha.
Not only was Noha attentive but she was effective. What seemed like impossible cases, Noha made it happen. One case was dropped completely and the other settled for less than 50%.
Noha took personal interest in what was happening in our family and really advocated for us. Due to our troubles we will for sure need further assistance and are grateful to have a company and employees that work so hard for their clients.
We send our personal thank you for making it happen for us. We are beyond appreciative to you all. Please acknowledge Noha for her kindness and hard work.
Aimee and Christiaan Lunney
Video Symphony v. Marcos Villanueva case number 15A16386 out of Los Angeles County. On February 26, 2020 Video Symphony (hereinafter “Plaintiff”) filed its lawsuit against Marcos Villanueva (hereinafter “Mr. Villanueva”) seeking $5,323.00 plus interest costs and attorney fees. The gravamen of Plaintiff’s lawsuit was that Mr. Villanueva attended Plaintiff’s school and as a result now owes Plaintiff money. Discovery was completed and trial commenced on October 28, 2019.
At trial attorneys for Fitzgerald & Campbell, APLC raised two main issues after Plaintiff’s case in chief. First, that the lawsuit was barred by the statute of limitations. The second argument was that Michael Flanagan, who presented himself as the President of Video Symphony, had virtually nothing to do with signing individuals up at the Video Symphony school and lacked the foundational requirement to be a true custodian of records. Attorneys for Fitzgerald & Campbell, APLC made a motion that judgment must be entered for Mr. Villanueva. The Court continued the trial and ordered that both sides brief the statute of limitations issue. The trial was continued to January of 2020 and both sides submitted briefs as order by the court.
The Court ultimately found for Mr. Villanueva after reading the briefs and hearing argument from both sides. Plaintiff, led by Michael Flanagan, then filed a motion to vacate the judgment entered for Defendant which was opposed. The Court denied Plaintiff’s motion and drafted a statement of decision. The statement of decision said that the lawsuit was filed outside the statute of limitations and that Michael Flanagan’s testimony was insufficient to secure a judgment.
So, in a nutshell, here’s what this ruling means. Mr. Flanagan filed the lawsuit outside the statute of limitations which means he filed the lawsuit too late for it to be held valid by the court. Also, Mr. Flanagan was ruled to NOT truly be a custodian of the records because he was not involved in the day to day operations of the school. This led to the judge ruling that his testimony did not hold enough validity to be admitted into evidence. Without enough evidence to prove the case, the judge ruled in favor of the student.
While this is a great ruling for the student, it’s not a guarantee that your case will have the same results. If you’re not already represented by a lawyer, we’d love for you to contact us at (855) 709-5788 and select option 3 from the phone tree, to talk to one of our knowledgeable Case Analysts. We look forward to hearing from you.

Fitzgerald & Campbell, APLC negotiated a private student loan debt totaling nearly $200,000.00 for a mere $25,100.00 this past week, saving their client over 87% of the amount due.

I recently found myself involved in a legal matter that required an attorney’s opinion. I spoke at length with Greg Fitzgerald and I have to say I was very impressed at the detailed and lengthy conversation where he provided in detail all my options. Should I need to retain them I will do so without hesitation and recommend them highly.
The fee they charge for the consultation is more than fair for the help you receive and they invited me to call/email them with any other questions or issues that may arise. It’s nice to not feel alone in this process!
Greg has helped us so much with a really bad situation we were in. I can’t even believe I am saying this about an attorney (no offense to attorneys but…) he is actually caring, helpful, and honest. He spent so much time listening to our circumstances and answering questions before we even retained him. I was so impressed by his knowledge and honesty, and compassion for our dire situation.
In just a short amount of time they have already got both lawsuits dismissed and one of the two debts settled. They are a legit company that quickly jumped on my problem and are working hard every day in solving my debt issue, they are always in direct communication with me and letting me know each step of the way what they are doing. Thanks to Fitzgerald & Campbell for being there for me and my family.
