Collection Law Firms

Debt collection law firms, also known as creditor’s rights law firms, focus on the collection of debt through the court system. While traditional collection agencies are not authorized to file lawsuits against debtors, collection attorneys specialize in taking debt cases to court to try to obtain court-ordered judgments against debtors.

In addition to teams of legal professionals, many collection law firms have extensive collection operations that conduct more traditional debt recovery activity.

Participation Cuts Both Ways; Another Take On “Meaningful Involvement”

In any relationship, contractual or otherwise, the responsibility to be “meaningfully involved” is not a one-sided equation.

Last week the CFPB, jointly with the FTC, filed an amicus brief with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit in Bock v. Pressler & Pressler, LLP.

The Latest Curve In CFPB vs. Hanna

On Monday July 27, 2015 Hanna filed a “Motion to Certify [the case] for an Interlocutory Appeal.” An interlocutory appeal an appeal of a specific ruling by a trial court, and asks an appellate court to review a significant aspect of the case before the trial has concluded.

Eleventh Circuit’s Mistaken Interpretation Likely to Expose Attorneys to Increased FDCPA Liability

The Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals recently handed down a decision that went too far in holding that all litigation related activity is subject to the FDCPA. In pursuing their client’s judgment, an attorney and law firm obtained a garnishment against Nedzad Miljkovic. Miljkovic filed a claim for exemption in response, which the creditor disputed. However, the writ was eventually dissolved on the creditor’s attorney’s motion after Miljkovic provided discovery showing that his wages were exempt from garnishment.
