Know Your Rights
Understanding Your Rights as a Debtor
In a situation where debt remains unpaid, often due to circumstances such as medical issues, divorce or job loss, these creditors often turn the debt over or sell the debt to collection agencies for payment. Although the collectors have a legal obligation to follow the laws concerning repayment, sometimes they overstep the bounds of the law and the rights of the consumer are violated. If you are in this situation, contact a New York City debt collection defense attorney at the Law Office of Abel L. Pierre, Attorney at Law, P.C. for assistance. We will gladly inform you about your rights under the law and help you determine if we can help in your case. Remember, everyone has the right to be treated fairly and the fact that you owe money to a creditor does not take that right away from you!
Representing Consumers Against Collection Agencies
At our firm, the debt collection defense team has a decade of experience representing clients like you whose consumer rights have been violated in a myriad of ways by creditors and collection agencies. For example, did you know that in addition to your possible feelings of anger, frustration and humiliation when a debt collector behaved offensively towards you or called your home at midnight or even worse, contacted your boss about your debt, that person may have violated your rights and is guilty of debt collection harassment per the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA)?
The example cited is just one instance of unfair and sometimes criminal practices that debt collectors regularly engage in and through which they violate your rights and those of other people. It is our job to hold them accountable and help you obtain fair compensation for any damages you have incurred. With an attorney who is an Arbitrator for the Small Claims Court of New York City, a member of the National Association of Consumer Law Advocates, a past Assistant Adjunct Law Professor and a community lecturer on financial subjects, we have the diversified experience and expertise in the field of consumer law and collection defense to give you the best chance of a positive outcome in your case.
Contact the Law Office of Abel L. Pierre, Attorney at Law, P.C. as soon as possible for a strong representation in your case.
