An Attorney Protecting the Rights of Creditors in Litigation
Creditors come in all shapes and sizes, from the large commercial entity to the small personal lender. In many cases, regardless of size, their activities may be regulated by state law and federal law. Frequently, an attempt to collect a debt may prompt counterclaims for violation of state and federal statute or regulation. A collection demand or lawsuit could be met with the threat of a borrower bankruptcy or an allegation that suit on the debt is time-barred or suffers other procedural problems.
Do you know what your rights are, or what leverage you have, if your borrower files bankruptcy? Attorney Rick DeBlasis has over 40 years of experience counseling creditors and debt collectors to avoid running afoul of state and federal law, navigating the alphabet soup (TILA, RESPA, FDCPA, FCRA, Reg X and Reg Z, OCSPA), and advising his clients about the impact of a borrower bankruptcy.
