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.

As a customer I was very glad with the level of service I received. I was both nervous and ashamed that I was going through the process of filing. My attorney was nonjudgmental, professional, and very knowledgeable. I had lots of questions and he patiently answered each of them helping me feel more confident in my decision making. I was unable to pay all fees up front and was happy to learn that there was a payment option where payments were deducted from my account until paid in full. Upon my final payment the process ran quickly and smoothly. I always felt like my best interest was at the forefront front the filing process, followup phone calls, reminder phones calls, the court date and discharge. I called the offices 3 years after filing and still, they were welcoming, supportive and informative even though I am not a current customer. This was the first step to me reestablishing myself as a conscious borrower and consumer.
Both Cad and Michael were fantastic!!! They were dedicated and very helpful during my entire bankruptcy. Every step was explained as well as any question that I had (even if I asked three or four times) got answered. I would recommend this team to anyone that needs to swallow their pride and file bankruptcy.
