Stop Creditor Harassment With Help From a Little Rock Lawyer

If you are tired of receiving harassing calls and letters from creditors, The Madden Law Firm in Little Rock, Arkansas, can help. The federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) protects people from many of the aggressive collection tactics employed by credit card companies and other creditors. The FDCPA gives you the right to sue for money damages if you are threatened or intimidated illegally.

Contact our attorneys to discuss your concerns about wage garnishment, Fair Credit Reporting Act violations, and other intimidation methods used by bill collectors. In many cases, our lawyers can stop creditors from contacting you within 48 hours of retaining us to handle your Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

For more information, visit our Chapter 11 Business Bankruptcy and Bankruptcy pages.

Understand Your Rights

We help stop creditor harassment from bill collectors who:

  • Contact your place of employment to discuss your debt.
  • Call your neighbors to discuss your debt or lifestyle.
  • Threaten to have you put in jail unless the debt is paid.
  • Threaten to contact federal officials about your legal residency status.
  • Report your car or other secured property as stolen unless the debt is paid.
  • Threaten to have you immediately removed from your rental property.
  • Make daily phone contact, including calls after 9 p.m.

Collection agencies are required to follow strict laws. For example, a collection agency is not allowed to make a false representation about who they represent or the intent of the call. They must be straightforward about working on behalf of a creditor or collections department to make arrangements for repayment. They cannot make false statements about garnishing more wages than the law allows. They also must be honest if asked about the size of their firm, and cannot tell you that they have several employees working on your case if, in fact, it is only a small firm.
