Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA)

Fair Debt Collection Practices Act Attorneys in Philadelphia

Asserting Your Rights to Avoid Unlawful Collection Practices

Debt collectors use many tactics to collect debts — some are legal, but many are not. If a creditor or debt collector has crossed the line in an attempt to collect, you may have a valid claim against the creditor or collection agency for violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA).

Weisberg Law is a consumer rights law firm focused exclusively on representing victims who’ve been wronged near Philadelphia. We never represent the collection agency or the creditor – we represent only you, the consumer, when you’re facing abusive debt collection that violates your rights.

Our Fair Debt Collection Practices Act attorneys in Philadelphia can help you determine if you have a valid claim. Contact Weisberg Law online or call (610) 550-8042 to schedule a free initial consultation.

Stop Harassment from Debt Collectors

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) is a federal law intended to eliminate abusive debt collection practices.

The following constitutes illegal or wrongful debt collection under the FDCPA:

  • Making calls to non-debtors (calling your friends, neighbors or family about your debts)
  • Calling you at work
  • Harassing or abusive phone calls, messages or letters
  • Using intimidation, threats or lies to collect debts
  • Making threats about wage garnishments, lawsuits or other legal action
  • Implying that illegal conduct will be taken if your bills are not paid
  • Attempting to collect debts that are not owed (e.g., someone else's debts or debts discharged in bankruptcy)

Put our extensive experience in consumer protection litigation in your corner when facing an overbearing debt collector. In filing a lawsuit against the creditor and collection agency under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, we may be able to negotiate a compromised debt settlement agreement, getting the debts entirely discharged.

In certain cases, you may be entitled to compensation for your embarrassment, emotional distress, and pain and suffering, as well as for punitive damages against the unscrupulous collector.
