You have legal rights. We can help.


An estimated one in seven Americans today is being chased by a collection agency, and one in 10 are actually having their wages garnished. It’s a devastating outcome when you are already struggling financially. If a debt collector is threatening your financial stability even further, hiring a consumer attorney can stop the harassment.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, was passed in 1977 to stop a rise in consumer bankruptcies due to debt collector harassment. Today, any third-party collection agency that uses these types of methods to make you pay can be sanctioned and even closed down.

  • Calling you several times a day
  • Contacting your friends and family when they already have your contact details
  • Chasing you for a debt that is barred by statute
  • Saying that they will serve court papers on you in a public place if you don’t pay
  • Using abusive language on the phone or while leaving a voice message
  • Failing to identify themselves as a debt collector in all communications
