Consumers can sue creditors and collectors if they violate protections of the FDCPA. Some collection tactics include asking you for money, even after a bankruptcy “automatic stay” is in place. When debt collectors call, leave messages, or mail material, it is helpful if you keep a log of these activities. A persistent bill collector can become a real pain. Until you are harassed by a debt collector, you may not realize that they get out of hand as often as they do. In the process of debt collection, there are strict legal and ethical guidelines that must be followed. If the agency trying to get money from you crosses the line, it’s your chance to take legal action against them. We hope to educate people about how to recognize illegal actions by creditors, as well as what your legal rights are as a consumer. Stop collection calls and stop Harassment. Every consumer has the right to sue a debt collector or collection agency for violating the FDCPA. (Fair Debt Collection Practices Act)
Can a Debt Collector Sue Me?
Debt can follow you if it’s not paid or somehow resolved. Therefore, a creditor, or debt collector, can absolutely sue a consumer who owes them money. If a creditor wins judgment against you, it can be to garnish wages and can prevent you from owning or purchasing real estate. Banks have repossessed vehicles although the consumer was up to date in payments. Filing bankruptcy can eliminate the liability of your judgement. Don’t think that it’s too late to file bankruptcy; you can do this at any stage. Stop, or prevent creditors from taking your property or wages. How can bankruptcy protect me? Discuss bankruptcy with a Debt Advisors attorney if you’d like to learn more about that option. Or, learn more about the damages you can collect in the FDCPA if you believe this is a better fit to your particular situation.
At Debt Advisors, we make debt collectors pay you! When a collection agency has violated the laws of the FDCPA, their actions are likely to have a negative impact on your life. The result of their illegal actions may have caused you tangible harm, as well as physical harm such as lack of sleep, stress and anxiety. If successful in proving your case, compensation for damages will be awarded. The payout can be big, and well worth your time and effort. (Up to $1,000 per each violation)
You Have the Right To Sue Creditors
Suing a debt collector will stop them from bothering you & potentially stop them from bothering other people in the future. These people who call, mail or leave messages to collect money from you, are referred to in a variety of ways.

I filed a chapter 7 bankruptcy at Debt Advisors with Attorney Janice Nabke and the entire experience was nowhere near as stressful as I was worried about thanks to Janice who was very caring and dedicated to doing everything she could to make the whole process as simple as possible. Janice is very experienced with Bankruptcy cases and knew every correct step to take and was very detailed in explaining everything that I needed to prepare for and what to expect from beginning to end but what really stood out to me was how nice she was with a great personality so I would like to thank her for all of the hard work she put fourth and would highly recommend her to anybody seeking bankruptcy assistance. I would like to make special mention to Holly Mclure Larson who helped me out more than I could possibly imagine and went far above and beyond my highest hopes and expectations after I was still facing harassment and threats from a VERY aggressive Collection Agency trying to collect on the discharged debt and due to the very gracious help from Holly who is FANTASTIC I feel so much better and cannot thank her and the entire team at Debt Advisors enough.
Debt Advisors is a wonderful company and I highly recommend them. Attorney Mike Georg has been so easy to work with and extremely helpful and kind throughout the process. Other amazingly helpful and caring staff I worked with were Holly, Julie and Jess. Thank you all!
My experience with Debt Advisors was wonderful, Michael Georg and his staff are very respectful, helpful and knowledgeable about the steps that need to be taken in your case. My case was simple but challenging for me but they made sure that I didn’t panic and they were able to resolve my case in a very quick and timely manner. I appreciate the time and consideration that they took with my case. Would highly recommend

I had an awesome experience with the entire team at Debt Advisors(D.A.). They made a very stressful and complicated situation very easy. When going into this I thought this process was going to be very long and stressful as I did not know what to fully expect. From my very first meeting to my last I had nothing but an easy and pleasant process. Every one was so knowledgeable and helpful! I could not have asked for a better team to assist me in my time of need. Sending a very big Thank you to all the staff at D.A. you guys are amazing.
Debt Advisors Law Offices rock! I went into bankruptcy not knowing what to expect but Mr. Pietrek who represented me put my mind at ease. Mr. Pietrek answered all of my question in-person and on the phone. I never felt uncomfortable or embarrassed. The amount of money I had to pay was like half the amount I would have had to pay going through ay other firm. If for some reason I had to go through bankruptcy again there would be no one else I would use. Good people good prices great services.
I am so grateful for the Debit Advisors in assisting me to get my life back on track. I have great respect for them. Debit Advisors has integrity! I was in a very difficult situation and they guided me through. They were honest with me about what I could and could not do, what is allowable and not allowable, they got bill collectors off my back and they replied back to me in a timely manner when I had questions. As long as I did my part in the process, they more than did their part.
Awesome experience! Helpful all the way through the process. Saved our lives.! Chad was great and everyone was so helpful.
Chad makes bankruptcy look and feel easy. He was very transparent, to the point, and comforting throughout the process. Any questions via email or call, were responded to in a beyond timely fashion. I would highly recommend working with Debt Advisors to get your fresh start.
