A Missouri Court has authorized this notice. This is not solicitation from a lawyer.

A civil lawsuit is pending, and a class action settlement has been preliminarily approved, against Wakefield & Associates, Inc. in the Circuit Court of St. Louis County, State of Missouri, Case No. 19SL-AC12801-01.

Plaintiff Brandy D. Martin filed a civil lawsuit in the Circuit Court of St. Louis County, Missouri against Wakefield (“the lawsuit”). Plaintiff filed the lawsuit on behalf of herself and as a class action on behalf of the group or “class” of persons who were sued by Wakefield concerning medical debt allegedly owed to Washington University or Washington University Physicians. Plaintiff alleges Wakefield violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act by collecting and attempting to collect improper amounts of interest and by filing the lawsuits in the name of Wakefield rather than Washington University. Wakefield denies these allegations.

You have not been sued. The Court certifying the Class and issuing Notice is not suggesting that the named Plaintiff or the Class would have won or lost the case.
