Palo Alto Collection Harassment Lawyer

Have you been the victim of unfair debt collection practices in Palo Alto?

As a debtor, or a person who owes money to a creditor or a lender, you may assume that you have very few rights against some of the seemingly unfair practices that these companies often engage in. Contrary to common belief, there are many actions that debt collectors are prohibited from doing, such as acting in an unprofessional and abusive manner towards those who owe debts.

If you believe that you have been victimized by an unfair practice of a debt collector in Palo Alto or a nearby area, it is very important that you speak with a lawyer about your situation. Reporting debt collector abuse is the first step to achieving the relief you need from this seemingly endless problem.

Our law firm has over 20 years of experience in handling these types of cases. We have a track record filled with many success stories, and we invite you to be our next success. We know the proper steps to take to help your case and can even assist in recording phone calls as evidence of abuse. Our attorney has a firm understanding of the legal action we can take and the action that is constituted as unlawful by debt collectors.

We will review your rights under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, a statute that outlines the actions that debt collectors are prohibited from doing, so that you can further understand if you truly have a case.

According to the FDCPA, a debt collector may not:

  • Call you with the intent to harass or annoy
  • Call at unusual hours
  • Call at your place of employment if your employer prohibits it
  • Call to discuss your personal financial matters with a person other than you.
  • Wrongfully threaten you with a lawsuit or wage garnishment
  • Tell you that you will go to jail if it is untrue
  • Use profane or abusive language when speaking with you

If you believe that a debt collector has engaged in any of these activities, we urge you to call our Palo Alto collection harassment lawyer as soon as possible. We will need to thoroughly review your case and find a way to prove that these debt collectors are acting in an unlawful manner. Our law firm will not request attorney fees up front, as we will hold the debt collector accountable to pay for these if we can win your case.
