Is Hamerhoff Law Group Calling You?*

Is Hamerhoff Law Group Calling You? Find out how to protect yourself!

If you encounter financial problems and fall behind on your debts, you will eventually hear from a debt collector, some of which try to get your money by intimidating you. They yell at you over the phone, talk to your friends and co-workers about the debt, and threaten to send you to jail. The good news is that there is something you can do about it.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), which is enforced by the Federal Trade Commission, regulates what third-party debt collectors do when attempting to collect a consumer debt. Collection strategies like those below are illegal and can result in fines and even license revocation.

  • Swearing at you, yelling, or threatening violence
  • Calling you at work if you’ve already told them that such calls are not permitted by your employer
  • Saying that they will seize your property or garnish your wages
  • Discussing the debt with anyone except you, your attorney, and possibly your spouse
  • Attempting to collect a debt discharged in a previous bankruptcy
  • Refusing to provide proof that you owe a debt and they are authorized to collect it

Alleged Violations against Hamerhoff Law Group*

Hamerhoff Law Group is a debt collection law office located in Tucson, Arizona. It was established in 1983, has approximately five employees, and is managed by its President, Mr. David Hameroff Esq. Records archived at the PACER (Public Access to Court Electronic Records) website confirm that Hamerhoff Law Group has been accused of violating the FDCPA during certain consumer interactions.

Hamerhoff Law Group Stop Calling Harrasment Lawyer

In or around 2014, Hamerhoff Law Group contacted an Arizona consumer in an attempt to collect a debt that was incurred by her estranged husband.

The husband incurred the debt prior to his marriage to the consumer, and at the time had been married to another woman.

On multiple occasions, Hamerhoff Law Group allegedly called the consumer and asked to speak with her husband and his previous wife. She advised each caller that she was not the husband or the previous wife, provided them with contact information for both, and asked them to stop calling, but the calls allegedly continued, some of them during work hours.

Hamerhoff Law Group eventually initiated legal action against the consumer, but she denied having been served with legal process.

A default judgement was therefore received, followed by wage garnishment, so she hired a consumer attorney and sued the law office for the following alleged FDCPA violations:

  • Causing her telephone to ring constantly and engaging her in annoying conversations
  • Using false, deceptive and misleading means to collect a debt
  • Misrepresenting the legal status of the debt
  • Threatening action that could not legally be taken
  • Using unfair and unconscionable means to collect a debt
  • Attempting to collect an amount not permitted by law or the original creditor agreement

The matter was later settled.
