Unlawful Debt Collection

Our Practice Areas

Some debt collectors use abusive and unlawful debt collection practices to take money from consumers.

This can even happen when your debt is unenforceable or belongs to somebody else.

Congress enacted the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) to prevent abusive, deceptive and unfair tactics by debt collectors. Our attorneys have litigated many claims under FDCPA, which have involved situations such as:

  • Misrepresentations regarding the amount of debt owed (including interest and penalties).
  • Furnishing inaccurate or misleading information about a debt to credit reporting agencies.
  • Attempts to collect debt belonging to another person or resulting from identity theft.
  • Communicating with consumers at their workplace or with a consumer’s family member.
  • Attempting to collect loans that have expired or passed the statute of limitations.
  • Repeated calls to consumers early in the morning or late at night.
  • Communicating with consumers without disclosing the debt collector’s identity.

If you’ve experienced any of the above practices, you might have a legal claim.
