You have legal rights. We can help.


Collecting debts is legal, but when your phone rings every day and the messages left are rude and demeaning, a line has been crossed. If a collection agency has you afraid to answer your phone or check your mail, contact a consumer protection lawyer who can take steps to stop the harassment on your behalf.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, or FDCPA, gives you the right to dispute a debt and demand no further contact from a debt collector. If they ignore your request and/or subject you to collection methods like the following, you can file a lawsuit against them.

  • Failing to send you a debt validation package within five days of first contacting you
  • Calling you before 8:00 a.m. and after 9:00 p.m. in your time zone
  • Calling you abusive names, like deadbeat and criminal
  • Demanding that you pay a debt that isn’t even yours
  • Calling you at work when they know that such calls are not allowed
  • Re-aging a debt to make it appear collectible by statute
