Committed To Keeping Collection Agencies Honest
The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) is a federal law that protects consumers from the illegal tactics employed by debt collectors. Yet, in spite of those regulations, agencies continue to employ false, deceptive and misleading tactics.
Fighting Against The Illegal Tactics Of Debt Collectors
At The Dodds Law Firm, we hold consumer debt collectors accountable for their illegal actions that can take the form of:
- Hiding their identity
- Ignoring requests not to contact you
- Contacting and sharing information with family, friends and co-workers
- Harassing and threatening you, including the use of profanity
- Increasing the debt by adding improper charges
Taking action immediately is important as you have a one-year window from the date of the violation to pursue litigation. Documenting that instance and others is important. Whether you take notes, record conversations or save correspondence, specific information can help build a strong case proving FDCPA violations.
During your initial consultation, we want you to tell us about the events that led you to our law office. If you have a case, we will aggressively pursue legal action against the debt collector. The moment you retain an attorney at our law office is the moment where all calls must stop. The collection agency can only talk to us.
