Because we are also a registered law firm (Mark Carey Law), we are able to assess your overall debt situation not only from a financial aspect, but also a legal aspect. We know the law regarding debt. This is why we are able to fight hard for our clients.
Consumer Protection and Debt Practice
Over 70 million Americans have accounts in collection, and while most collection agencies and debt buyers, some conduct themselves in an unscrupulous and often-illegal manner. If you feel you are being victimized by a collection agency or debt buyer, we can use one of the following Federal laws to help you. We provide these services for free, at no out of pocket cost to you. Ever. If your rights have been violated, we may be able to put money back in your pocket!!
Fair Debt Collection Practicies Act
The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act protects you from illegal debt collection activity, like: harassing phone calls; threatening you with litigation or arrest; telling 3rd parties about your debt; calling you at home or work after you have asked them not to; attempting to collect a debt with unauthorized fees and charges; AND many other illegal actions.
The Fair Credit Reporting Act
The Fair Credit Reporting Act protects you from inaccurate or outdated credit report listings. These errors can and will affect what mortgage rate you can obtain, what car loan you qualify for you drive, what type of job or insurance you qualify for. Sometimes these errors are a mistake, but if you do not feel comfortable enough to go up against the Credit Reporting Agencies on your own, we can help.
Telephone Consumer Protection Act
The Telephone Consumer Protection Act protects you from unwanted robo-calls and texts from collection agencies. If you are getting calls on your cell phone that you did not authorize or that you have revoked, we can get the calls to stop.
