Best strategy: hire me or someone like me to do discounted settlement in lieu of Bky.

First, if you have been sued, you should file a response to the lawsuit within 20 days time.
Second, you cannot prevent a creditor from seeking to collect their fee through litigation. You may seek to negotiate a resolution with the creditor prior to a court proceeding, however.
Third, if your finances indicate a bankruptcy is an option, that may be a way to stop debt collection efforts before they proceed to judgment.
