A Navy servicemember seeks pro bono assistance to negotiate a settlement with a car company. The servicemember co-signed his former girlfriend’s car loan. The girlfriend was unable to keep up with payments and she passed away soon thereafter. The vehicle was repossessed, and the car company has brought a lawsuit against the servicemember to seek the remaining balance of about $20,000, along with several thousand dollars in interest and fees. The servicemember is limited in his ability to pay damages.
