About the Federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA)
FDCPA (15 U.S.C. §§1692-1692p) was designed to help deter “abusive, deceptive and unfair debt collection practices.” The reasoning was that these tactics used by debt collectors were a driving factor behind everything from the increase in bankruptcies to marital instability. Therefore, the FDCPA was crafted to help protect the right of the borrower, while still giving collectors a path to effective collection.
There are many different practices explained under FDCPA; for example, a debt collector who is seeking to collect may be prohibited from:
- Communicating “at any unusual time or place”
- Communicating if they know the consumer has a lawyer
- Communicating at the consumer’s place of employment
At our firm, we are well-versed in all of the many stipulations and details surrounding the FDCPA. Regardless of whether you are a collector or a debtor, you can trust in our firm to ensure that your rights are protected to the full extent of the law. We know how stressful financial issues can be and will do everything possible to ensure that you are treated fairly. If you are a debt collector, we will work with you to make sure that your actions adhere to FDCPA regulations while still aiding you in seeking fair payment.
