We Make Harassing Debt Collectors Pay You
Debt collectors and collection agencies must obey the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act(FDCPA) and other consumer protection legislation and other laws. If a debt collector violates FDCPA, the collector can be held liable for $1,000 for each violation. If a debt collector violates the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), the collector may have to pay $500 for each offending call. Our firm can represent you, seeking to end debt collector harassment and maximum compensation under FDCPA, TCPA and other laws. We can handle your case at no charge to you, because the debt collector will be responsible for paying our attorney fees.
Stopping Credit Report Abuses
Our firm helps people remove inaccurate information from their credit reports. We can provide you with a free credit report analysis and a complimentary letter you can use to request the removal of inaccurate information from your credit report. If we believe that a credit bureau or another party has violated the Fair Credit Reporting Act, we can represent you. If we are successful, you may obtain $1,000 for each willful violation, plus attorney fees and court costs.
