Austin Unfair Debt Collection Lawyers
Texas Consumer Debt Attorneys
We were in trouble. Credit card bills had accumulated to an overwhelming, uncontrollable amount. We couldn't keep up with minimum payments and were told our credit card debt couldn't be discharged through bankruptcy under the new laws. Debt collectors kept harassing us until, eventually, we were contacted by a collection attorney. We were facing a lawsuit.

Defeat Creditors, Protect Your Interests
There are defensive as well as offensive measures that can be taken to defeat the company seeking a default judgment through a lawsuit against you. As experienced attorneys, we recognize the mistakes collection attorneys often make when filing these lawsuits. Often times, claims are unsubstantiated, exposing the attorney, the law firm, and the company to potential sanctions. Our attorneys are skilled calling attention to these issues as well as others.
In addition, there are a number of Federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) violations as well as Texas Fair Debt Collection Act (TFDCA) violations, which constitute unfair debt collection, for which the creditor may be held liable, such as:
- Failure to verify the debt on request
- Threatening collection on a debt barred by time limitations
- Filing suit on a debt barred by limitations
- Other deceptive or unfair debt collection practices
Our skills have proven effective in representing many clients facing collection lawsuits. We have effectively resolved cases through a judge's summary judgment in our client's favor or in settlements which the company agrees to dismiss the case with prejudice.
