Debt Collection Defense in Queens

Are creditors calling you day and night? The Law Office of Abel L Pierre provides debt collection defense in Queens to fight debt collectors and provides you with experienced legal counsel and tireless defense. Queens is an energetic borough located on New York City’s Long Island with Flushing Meadows Corona Park’s Unisphere as its symbol of sorts.

Many businesses face financial challenges following the COVID-19 Pandemic. So, it is essential that you are informed of your rights and options regarding debt collection.

Debt collectors may be aggressive and intimidating, but you have legal protections available to you both under state and federal law called the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act or FDCPA. This act prohibits debt collectors from engaging in unfair or deceptive debt collection practices such as threatening legal action that they cannot pursue or misrepresenting the amount owed. If any debt collector violates this act, filing a lawsuit against them and potentially recovering damages may be an option.

New York state law offers additional protections to business owners than federal law alone can. For example, the New York Department of Financial Services regulates debt collection practices and requires all debt collectors to be licensed before providing written notice of the debt and your rights within five days after initiating contact with you. If a debt collector violates these rules, filing a complaint with NYDFS could help recover damages from that collection company.

But what if the debt itself is in dispute? In this case, you can request that the collector present evidence of its validity within 60 days; otherwise, they cannot legally pursue further.
