You have legal rights. We can help.


These days, so many people are living from paycheck to paycheck. All it takes is a single accident or illness to send your debts out of control. To make matters worse, debt collectors often abuse and harass you when you can’t pay. Although they won’t admit it, such conduct is illegal under both state and federal law.

Your Rights Under the FDCPA

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) regulates the conduct of third-party debt collectors. These companies may only contact you at approved times and refrain from abusive conduct like the following:

  • Demanding more than you actually owe
  • Discussing the debt with third parties
  • Failing to report a debt as disputed to the credit bureaus
  • Calling you at work if they know what such calls are not allowed
  • Demanding that you pay a debt discharged in bankruptcy
  • Pretending to be police officers
