ABUSIVE DEBT COLLECTION

It is difficult to ignore harassment and abuse from debt collectors.  It can strain personal relationships, affect your employment, invade your privacy, and sometimes lead you to the brink of bankruptcy.  Recognizing these problems, Congress created a set of rules, known as the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) by which most debt collectors must abide.  California expanded on these rules with its own set of additional protections, known as the Rosenthal FDCPA.  If you are targeted by a debt collector who refuses to play by the rules, you should contact our office immediately.
