We will Help You Know Your Rights
As provided for under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, creditors, debt collectors and solicitors are only allowed to contact you with your express consent. Sometimes creditors and collectors may hide certain clauses in the contract, giving consent. Even where you signed a contract containing clauses that meant giving consent without your knowledge, our skilled lawyers can contest and revoke it in court and help you restore your right. By revoking your consent, you can confidently add those stubborn callers to your “do not call list.”
We will Put a Stop to Credit Collection Attempts
Are you behind your credit card or mortgage repayments? Whether your financial challenges are due to loss of employment, divorce or workplace accidents, the fact that you are still obligated to pay your loan doesn’t give debt collectors the latitude to harass you at will. We at GM Law Firm LLC understand that every consumer has specific rights and legal protections against harassment and actions that seek to undermine consumer rights as wet out in the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. Far too many mortgage firms and their debt collection agencies commit numerous illegalities on the assumption that most consumers do not comprehend their rights. At GM Law Firm, our skilled and experienced attorneys are always ready to explain your rights and fight back any practice that undermines your rights.
While it is allowed for debt collectors to call you in relation to payment of a debt, none of the laws allows debt collectors the free will to call any time all the time. This means that debt collectors are limited in how often they call and what content the calls should communicate. For example, debt collectors cannot contact you after 9 p.m or before 8 a.m. They cannot also call your employer informing him of your debt obligations. Here are some of the protections that you enjoy under the law: Debt collectors:
• Cannot communicate a person other than you except your lawyer regarding your debt obligation
• Cannot engage in actions of harassment or threats in order to cause you to pay
• Must identify themselves and the declare whom they represent
• Cannot claim to act as an attorney or officers in the law enforcement field
• Cannot threaten you that non-payment will cause you to be arrested or face legal proceedings
• Cannot send mail in an envelope printed clearly indicating that you are indebted
