You have legal rights. We can help.


Debt collection agencies can be relentless. Consumers who owe less than $100 have been sworn at, contacted multiple times a day using an autodialer, and embarrassed in front of their coworkers, friends, and family. If you are targeted in this manner, a free consultation from a consumer lawyer can make it stop.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

  • Yelling at you and using abusive language
  • Demanding that you pay a time-barred debt
  • Threatening to take your house
  • Calling you at work
  • Pretending to be members of law enforcement
  • Calling you outside of the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m.
