Creditor Harassment

Aggressive Protection from Detroit Bankruptcy Lawyers

One of the worst parts about having a significant amount of debt is dealing with creditors who continually call, send letters, and threaten legal action, generally making a bad situation even more miserable. If you are worn-out due to these distressing types of contacts, you need an attorney by your side to help you put an end to the harassment. Our team of Detroit bankruptcy attorneys have over a decade of experience in these matters and will advocate for your rights while also being sensitive to the stress of this difficult time. At The Cartwright Law Firm, we will personally evaluate your circumstances and offer you a choice of options to make the harassment stop.

During our free initial consultation, we will be able to determine if your rights have been violated and if necessary, file a complaint. If there is no way that you can pay your bills, however, a means to immediately stop creditors from their pursuit of your money is to file for bankruptcy under Chapter 7 or Chapter 13. Our team of attorneys is experienced in issues of this sort and can review your financial situation to determine if you qualify for bankruptcy. Once you have filed, a notice called an "automatic stay" is immediately sent to your creditors and they are required under law to stop contacting you.

What Is Creditor Harassment?

Under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), creditors are limited in the way they can contact you regarding your debts. Harassment or abusive actions are illegal. In addition, once bankruptcy is filed, creditors are prohibited from contacting you to request payment.

Examples of creditor harassment include:

  • Repeatedly calling you at all hours, such as early in the morning and late at night
  • Using profane language
  • Threatening violence against you
  • Misrepresenting the debt you owe
  • Pressuring you to sell your home
  • Embarrassing you in public about the money you owe

Compassionate and Concerned Legal Representation

Since 1999 we have been proudly serving clients in Detroit, Southfield and Pontiac communities, and understand the complex problems of our clients. We will diligently work to safeguard your constitutional rights and stop the loss of your property through creditor harassment. Don't hesitate to call; you need to make contact today so that you can once again answer your telephone and open your mail without fear.
