Collections Defense Attorney in Arlington

Call (817) 381-9292 to End Creditor Abuse

Many people mistakenly believe they have no defense when it comes to persistent creditor abuse. This is simply not the case. The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) is a federal law that protects you from creditors who employ harsh or threatening debt collection tactics.

For example, creditors are required to properly inform you of any lawsuit made against you. If you receive notice of a default judgment but were unaware that a debt lawsuit had been enacted, your creditor may be guilty of "sewer service" which is a violation of federal laws.

The FDCPA also prohibits debt collectors from:

  • Calling you after 9:00 p.m. or before 8:00 a.m. in your time zone
  • Calling your workplace when you have asked them to stop
  • Leaving anonymous voicemail messages
  • Using obscene, vulgar, or insulting language
  • Threatening you with violence or arrest
  • Disclosing details about your debt to an unauthorized third party
  • Threatening you with actions they cannot or do not plan to follow through with
  • Communicating with you after receiving your written request that they cease contact
  • Misrepresenting the amount of your debt or asking you to pay more than what you owe

If you have been the victim of illegal creditor activity, it is important that you get legal help on your side right away. You may be eligible for compensatory funds if a debt collector has violated your FDCPA rights. Let our experienced Arlington bankruptcy lawyer help you.
