Debt Collection Defense
Are you being harassed by debt collectors? Have you been sued by a debt collection company? Did you know that you can fight back?
The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act protects consumers from vicious debt collectors. It is illegal for a debt collector to call you in the middle of the night. It is also illegal for a debt collector to threaten you with criminal punishments. The Federal Trade Commission has published a useful guide to help consumers understand their rights under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act- click here to learn more about your rights. The law firm of Behrend & Ernsberger, P.C. has significant experience in fighting back against ruthless debt collectors who refuse to play by the rules.
If you have already been sued by a debt collector, it is still possible to fight back. Debts, especially consumer credit card debt, can be bought and sold by companies in the United States. Credit card companies often sell their rights to debt collectors, meaning that the credit card company is not suing you, but that a debt collector is. A debt collector must show sufficient documentation to convince a court that they have a right to collect a debt from you. Frequently, debt collectors cannot prove that you owe the debt. Behrend & Ernsberger, P.C. has been able to stop numerous collection attempts because we know how to show the court that the debt collector cannot show that it has a right to sue you. Behrend & Ernsberger, P.C. has even been able to force the debt collector to pay our client for their abuse of the civil justice system.
