Need Help with A Debt Collection Lawsuit or Creditor Abuse?

Our Firm is Dedicated to Defending Consumers

We defend consumers against debt-collection lawsuits, judgment enforcement, and collection abuse. Whether you've received a summons, a bank restraint ("freeze"), or a wage-garnishment notice, you need a firm that understands procedural law, consumer law, contract law, debt-collection regulation, credit-reporting law, and process-service regulation.

Our dedication to debt-defense law is reflected by the following achievements and activities:

We thoroughly investigate the facts, attack bad service of papers, and challenge the admissibility of all evidence.

We are happy to negotiate or litigate on your behalf. We do so with your financial security and credit-health as our objective.
