Practice Areas

Debt Defense, Foreclosure Defense, Debt Collection, Debt Settlement, Consumer Protection.

My firm provides services for consumer protection in the following areas:

  • Debt settlement — If you have a credit card balance you cannot possibly hope to repay, I negotiate a reasonable debt settlement that allows you to get on with your life.
  • Foreclosure defense — If your mortgage lender is threatening you with foreclosure, I take decisive steps to help you keep your home.
  • Credit repair — If an error on your credit report or a past blemish is hurting your credit, I take action that requires the credit reporting agency to make the necessary corrections.

When debt is causing you and your family hardship, I am determined to bring effective relief at a very reasonable cost.

Industry Areas

Banking, Finance, Household Finance, Mortgage Financing, Mortgage Servicing

  • Oppressive debt collections — Bill collectors are prevented by law from using false, deceptive or misleading representations or means to obtain payments on overdue accounts. The federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act generally forbids harassing or annoying debtors, threatening them with arrest or litigation, making early morning or late night phone calls, contacting them at their place of business, speaking to their friends and family or contacting debtors directly once it is known they are represented by a lawyer. I know how to use the FDCPA to stop collectors from using these oppressive tactics against you and to win money damages and attorneys’ fees in your behalf.
  • Predatory lending — There are many and varied schemes by which disreputable lenders target vulnerable consumers, including excessive interest, hidden fees and penalties and deceptive loan-repayment structures. The federal Truth in Lending Act and Home Ownership and Equal Protection Act bar such illicit practices in general and for loans secured by liens on borrowers’ dwelling, such as purchase-money mortgages, refinances, closed-end home equity loans and open-end credit plans. These laws provide remedies that I can effectuate in your behalf, including working to prevent creditors from taking enforcement measures like foreclosure against you.
  • Unfair billing — I help my clients avail themselves of the federal Fair Credit Billing Act, which bars invalid billing practices such as charging the wrong amount, charging for merchandise never received, sending bills to the wrong address or failing to post payments and credits or to reverse unauthorized charges. The law also gives you the right as a borrower to dispute charges you believe to be erroneous or fraudulent, such as where you may be a victim of identity theft. I can also champion your rights under the Fair Credit Reporting Act to review your credit score and dispute any mistakes in your credit report.

I am committed to protecting your rights as a consumer through all available remedies, including complaints to the Pennsylvania Bureau of Consumer Protection, which investigates fraud and deception in the sale, servicing and furnishing of goods and services, and the Fair Trade Commission’s Bureau of Consumer Protection, which enforces federal laws dealing with unfair or deceptive consumer practices. I can also enforce your rights by bringing suit in court in appropriate circumstances.

Representative Clients
