You have legal rights. We can help.


Debt can leave you feeling helpless and stressed. It can also happen to anyone. Losing your job, spending an extended period of time in the hospital, and facing an unexpected crisis like divorce or property damage can all put you in arrears and set debt collectors on your trail.

If you are being harassed, don’t tolerate it no matter how much you owe, as abusing consumers is against the law.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, governs the debt collection industry. It requires third-party collection agencies to treat you with respect in all communications and penalizes companies that do the following:

  • Calling you at inconvenient times and places
  • Failing to identify themselves as debt collectors seeking to collect a debt
  • Using profane and abusive language
  • Calling before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m. in your time zone
  • Contacting you after you have formally requested that all communications cease
  • Calling you at work after they’ve been advised that such calls are not allowed
