Debtor-Creditor Law

Typically, consumers will run into debtor-credit relationship problems in a few key areas:

  • Past due credit card collections
  • Automatic withdrawal accounts, i.e. health clubs, cable and utility services
  • Payday lender accounts
  • Apartment lease or security deposit issues
  • Inaccurate credit reporting status

The types of problems that usually arise from unfair debt collections practices will usually involve one or more of the following:

  • Harassment or abuse in telephonic or written communications 
  • Collections communications with relatives, friends or employers of the debtor
  • False or misleading collections representations
  • Debt collection past expiry of the statute of limitations 

If you have experienced one or more of the above abusive collections practices, or you’re currently being harassed by a debt collector and would like to know what your rights are - or whether you have a case against a creditor, contact me for a private complementary consultation* on the matter.

Note: Please!  Always take written notes whenever you are contacted by a debt collector.  Take note of the time, date, their name, their company name, what was said, length of call, whether at home or work, if they talked to you, a family member, friend, co-worker or employer – the more details you can write down, the better - for these notes can become powerful evidence in proving your claim later against an abusive creditor or collections agency!
