Defending You Against Debt Collectors In New York

Your Lawsuit Defense Options

The most important step you can take when you are sued by a debt collector or even just threatened with a lawsuit is to involve our law firm. You will likely have just 30 days to respond to a summons or complaint, and failing to respond by the deadline will result in a default judgment against you. In turn, that judgment may result in wage garnishment, bank levies, and other serious consequences.

In the world of debt collection, time is of the essence. If you wait too long to respond to a lawsuit or seek professional assistance, you may unnecessarily lose your property or be forced to pay a debt that could have been discharged. No matter your situation, our bankruptcy attorney in Queens is here to fight aggressively for your best interests and help you work toward a better financial future.

When you call our law firm, our attorney can:

  • Help you assess your options and understand your rights;
  • Build a defense against the plaintiff’s claim (e.g. proving that you are not liable for the debt for various reasons, or exposing the plaintiff’s failure to follow proper protocol);
  • Ensure the debt collector has respected your rights and, if applicable, expose any violations of your rights;
  • Negotiate with the debt collector to settle the debt or obtain more reasonable terms; and/or
  • Help you file bankruptcy or employ another debt-relief strategy

Business Loan & Cash Advance Collections

If you owe business debts, acts like the FDCPA do not protect you. However, you may still be protected under legislation like the New York General Business Law (NYGBL) and the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC). These laws prohibit deceptive and unfair business practices, and they apply to companies that collect commercial debts.

If you owe business debts, we can defend you against companies that offer business loans and advances, such as:

  • Yellowstone Capital
  • Merchant Cash & Capital, LLC
  • Kabbage
  • OnDeck
  • Merchant Capital Partners

In many cases, debt collection agencies violate consumers’ rights in their attempts to collect debts. For example, they may commit creditor harassment, use abusive language, misrepresent themselves, or employ other tactics that are generally deceptive or unfair. As a consumer, you are protected from these tactics by acts like the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), and our attorney may be able to sue a collection agency to obtain compensation on your behalf.
