Suing Debt Collectors
Are you faced with a debt collection situation that requires strong legal
assistance from an experienced
Wheeling bankruptcy attorney? At Thomas E. McIntire & Associates, LC, we can provide you with effective
legal guidance as you sue a debt collector. Our lead attorney has nearly
30 years of experience, so you can trust in our firm for the help you need.
Federal law provides provisions for debt collectors to pursue actions to
collect the money they are owed and allows individuals to sue collection
agencies who have violated the regulations set forth in the Federal Debt
Collection Practices Act (FDCPA).
Keeping Records on Debt Collection Actions
You will need aggressive legal guidance to effectively resolve your case.
In addition to being represented by a knowledgeable and experienced bankruptcy
lawyer, it is essential that you keep very detailed records of all communication
with the debt collector.
Your records should include:
Name of collector
Date and time of phone call
Phone number from debt collector
Notes on what was said
Although our firm does not defend against civil actions if one has already
been sued by a collection company, we provide knowledgeable guidance for
individuals pursuing a lawsuit. We also can represent people pursuing
class actions against collectors.
Know Your Rights
You will also want to
inform the debt collector that you are aware of your rights. We have a solid understanding of the FDCPA and associated laws. If you
are looking for information about what a debt collector can and cannot
do to collect money that you owe, we can take the time to discuss your
rights with you. In addition, we can help you understand what to expect
if the case goes to court.
