LaPlace Creditor Harassment Attorney
Metairie Bankruptcy Lawyer
In 2010, the Federal Trade Commission received more complaints about creditors
than almost any other business type (surpassed only by car dealers). The
FTC also reported that those numbers of creditor complaints were up 15%
from 2009. You are not alone if you are facing creditor harassment after
not being able to pay your bills on time. With the downturn of the economy,
it has become more and more difficult to stay above water, despite your
best efforts. You can force debt collectors to stop harassing you by filing
for bankruptcy with a
Metairie bankruptcy attorney.
Bacchus Law Group, LLC is here to help you take your life back. Our attorneys
work with hundreds of people every year, managing their bankruptcy needs.
You will receive unmatched personal service and open, accessible communication
after deciding to become one of our clients. You may also need help with
wage garnishment, and our attorneys have experience in all these areas and can guide you
through this overwhelming process. Remember that the moment you file for
bankruptcy, your creditors must immediately cease all efforts to obtain
funds from you.
Stopping Creditor Harassment
If you feel that filing for
bankruptcy is not in your best interest at this point, you still have some other
options you can discuss with our attorneys. Your LaPlace creditor harassment
lawyer also will be able to write a cease and desist letter to creditors
on your behalf. Under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA),
creditors may not take any of the following actions:
- Calling you at all hours with aggressive messages
- Exaggerating or lying about the amount or type of your debt
- Failing to give you a letter describing your debt in detail
If you have fallen victim to any of these creditor abuses, they have violated
the FDCPA, and your attorney may be able to take legal action in your defense.
Contact a creditor harassment lawyer to stop being harassed by debt collectors. If you live in Mandeville,
Covington, and St. Tammany Parish or the surrounding areas, be sure to
reach out to our bankruptcy firm.
