New York Debt Litigation Attorney
Are bill collectors harassing you?
No one likes to fall behind on their bills or default on a loan. Unexpected events can disrupt anyone's life and change their ability to satisfy their monthly expenses. The loss of a job, sudden medical bills or death in the family can provoke unpleasant collection calls from companies whose job it is to demand payment on unpaid accounts. It is an unfortunate fact that some collection agencies will go to extreme measures to try to coerce payments. They can be rude, threaten to report your delinquencies and make other statements that are untrue or even illegal. You are protected legally from such behavior and harassment. If you have suffered such misconduct you should speak to a New York bankruptcy lawyer at Price Law Group to find out what your rights are and how we can help you.
Most people do not know about the Fair Debt Collections Practice Act (FDCPA). It specifically lists those actions and tactics that are considered creditor abuse and gives the consumer the right to sue if these rules are violated. We have helped people like you to fight back against the harassment and threats they have been subjected to. You can collect damages for such harassment and as well as for your legal fees and costs.
Debt Litigation Lawyer in New York
Bill collectors often start off being very reasonable and try to get you to pay back your entire debt or offer you some reduced payment. If one company is not successful, your account will often be passed onto another collection firm and the new agents get more aggressive. If you experience such rude or threatening behavior form a collection agent, you should keep good records and get the name of the agent. The most specific details you have the better we can pursue your case. The FDCPA prohibits such things as:
- Repeated call or calls before 8AM or after 9PM
- Rude or threatening statements
- Profanity or discriminatory statements
- Threatening to sue you without due process
