For more than 20 years we've fought for consumers.  

Now how can we fight for you?

Robo Calls

It’s illegal to robo call your cell phone after you’ve told a company to stop. It’s also illegal to robo call if you never gave your permission in the first place. The law is call the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). If anyone is using a computer to call your cell phone, or sending you pre-recorded voice or text messages, then call us immediately. We can help. You can recover up to $1,500 per call/message for your trouble and there’s no fee unless we recover on your TCPA case. Give us a chance to help you make the calls stop and put money in your pocket.  Click here to find out more.

Student Loans

Student loans are a complex matter, both practically and legally.  We have great information here about the best approach to managing student loan debt and your rights. Click here to find out more.

Collection Harassment

If you’re getting harassed by a debt collector, you’ve come to the right place. With more than 25 years of combined experience suing debt collectors, we can help. In fact, we’ve pioneered suing debt collectors under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), training thousand of lawyers across the United States along the way in our FDCPA Boot Camps. Any debt collector who violates your rights may have to pay you statutory damages of up to $1,000, any actual damages, and your attorney’s fees and costs. If we represent you in an FDCPA case, you won’t pay any attorney’s fees unless we recover on your behalf. We even front the costs for you.  Click here to find out more.

Credit Reports

Credit reports are an integral part of your financial success.  By law, your credit reports must be accurate or you have a right to get them corrected.  Click here to find out more.

Debt Defense

We help defend nice people from not-so-nice lawsuits. If you’ve been sued for credit cards, student loans, or any other kind of consumer debt, call us. We defend lawsuits in court with unrivaled expertise. We charge a small upfront fee to analyze your case and your options. If you want us to use deep bench of negotiation experience to get a fair settlement for you, we’ll do our very best. If you dispute the debt and want to fight it, we’ll put together a plan to aggressively make the debt collector prove their case–or go away.  Click here to find out more.
