Collection Harassment Attorneys

Lawyers in Los Angeles Protecting Your Rights

Debt collection agencies can be unrelenting in their pursuit of getting you to pay outstanding bills. There are some debt collectors who will go beyond reasonable methods to contact debtors and collect whatever money possible, even using harassing  techniques, threats, and abusive language. If debt collectors aren’t playing by the rules and respecting your rights, contact our firm to learn about the recourse you may have.


At the Law Office of Robert L. Starr, we help people victimized by companies who only care about the bottom line, and not about your legal rights. We’ve been able to stop creditor harassment, file lawsuits against collection agencies, and obtain monetary damages for our clients that were victims of unfair and abusive collection practices.


Examples of Harassment by Debt Collectors


Debt Collection Agencies vs. Debt Collection Departments

Debt collection agencies have been given authorization by a creditor to collect a debt as a third party, and special rules apply by the Federal Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). However, many companies have an internal billing and collections department, such as most credit card companies, that will attempt to directly collect money from you. These debt collection departments are not subject to all of the restrictions on of the FDCPA (for example, they can call you at work unless you ask them to stop), but they cannot verbally threaten you and they must not contact you if you involve an attorney or have declared bankruptcy.

Many debt collection agencies have simply purchased defaulted loans and debts for pennies on the dollar and try to collect by repeatedly calling debtors, effectively operating as call centers for bill collection. The employees making calls for the debt collection companies can be paid more when they collect form debtors - and this incentive, coupled with poor training and lack of supervision, leads to some debt collectors breaking the rules. If you believe you have been harassed you can seek recourse and damages from the unlawful practices of the debt collecting agencies.
