If you have ever been behind in paying your bills, you know that you’re guaranteed to hear from a debt collector. A debt collector is someone, other than the creditor, who regularly collects debts owed to someone else. Lawyers who collect debts are considered to be debt collectors, too. And debt collectors are abusive. They violate the law, but you can fight back!
Debt collectors generate more complaints to the FTC than any other industry group. The list of things a debt collector is prohibited from doing is exhaustive and complicated. If you want to get an idea of whether you are being abused, seek the advice of a consumer rights attorney for FREE!
If you think are being harassed by a debt collector, fill out this simple debt collection evaluation form and an attorney from our office will review the information and respond to you within 24 business hours (and usually faster). The collectors have waited this long, they can wait another day while you check out your legal rights and remedies.
