Zwicker & Associates Cases Dismissed for Failure to Produce
Process Server at Traverse Hearings
Zwicker & Associates brazenly affirmed the veracity of blatantly falsified affidavits of service, we argue. The affidavits were those of American Legal Process, the disgraced process serving company that was shut down for its systematic sewer service scandal that resulted a state petition to overturn approximately 100,000 judgments. Rather than honor our clients' sworn affidavits factually rebutting the affidavits, Zwicker dragged our clients to multiple traverse hearings that did not go forward.
We vacated two Discover Bank judgments: one for $10,241 and the other for $9,000. Because of Zwicker's inability to prove proper service, both actions were dismissed. Discover Bank v. Nieves, 52393/07, Queens Civil Court;
Discover Bank v. L.N., 02100/08, Queens Civil Court).

Zwicker & Associates Found Liable for Deceptive Collection Letter
Sparkman v. Zwicker & Associates, P.C. (Eastern District, New York 2005)
The court found as a matter of law Zwicker's collection letter violated the FDCPA because it failed to clearly identify the creditor. The letter also violated the FDCPA because of its confusing language as to whether or not an attorney was "meaningfully involved" in preparing the letter.
