Bridgehampton Debt Collection Defense Lawyer
The Brill Legal Group Helps Our Clients Fight Debt Collectors, Wage Garnishments, and Frozen Bank Accounts.
Most Importantly, We Can Stop the Incessant Calls of Debt Collectors.
The attorneys at the Brill Legal Group help our clients defend themselves against debt collection lawsuits and abusive debt collectors. We intercede for consumers burdened by money or default judgments and we sue debt collectors for violating collection laws, including the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. Our firm provides a last bastion of defense against collectors at an affordable cost.
We may also be able to recover damages for you if the debt collectors violated the law during their interactions with you. We often find that our clients are completely unaware of the laws available to protect them. Unfortunately, the debt collection firms are often equally ignorant, or intentionally violate the law because they think no one will ever stand up to them.
The Brill Legal Group defends against all types of debt collection lawsuits, including credit card debt, medical debt, car loans and repossessions, cell phone bills, delinquent student loans and other debts. In response to unfair, deceptive, and sloppy collection practices, the Brill Legal Group can bring separate federal and state lawsuits against collectors and lawyers to remedy collection abuse and credit reporting violations. The odds are you don't know your rights.
We can protect your money and your credit history. Let us help you stop the harassment.
In many cases, we can quickly help you stop garnished wages and release frozen bank accounts, often due to lying process servers who never served you but falsely claimed they did.
At any time before, during, or after a debt lawsuit, we can help. If you are having difficulty keeping up with your credit card payments and other unsecured debt, we may be able to help you settle your debt at a reduced amount. We will assist in the negotiation of your debt and create a customized repayment plan to help keep you on track.
Creditor Harassment and Unfair Collection Lawsuits in Suffolk County, Montauk and the Hamptons
Even if you owe a debt, you don't have to give in to the bullying tactics of the debt collection industry. State and federal laws exist to protect you, and we can force collectors to pay you for violating the law. Unscrupulous debt collectors can be held strictly liable for acting illegally against you.
Debt collectors may not:
- Call family, friends, or neighbors to collect a debt
- Insult you, yell at you, or harass you
- Call your workplace
- Mislead or deceive you with confusing letters or calls
- Misrepresent the amount you owe or who actually owes the debt
- Sue you without meaningful attorney review
- Sue you in a county other than where you live
- Intentionally sue you at a wrong address
- Sue you to harass the true owner of the debt
- Sue you for a wrong or inflated amount
- Place inaccurate information on your credit reports
In fact, you may not only recover money for the above violations but the collector may be required to pay your legal bills. We pursue abusive debt collectors and collection agencies by assisting in the enforcement of federal laws such as the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) and the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). If you are the unfortunate victim of credit card identity theft, this office is equipped to repair your credit score to its pre-debt levels.
If you have experienced any of the above, or believe that you've been treated unfairly, contact us today for a free consultation.
