Debt collection practices and consumers protections are heavily regulated areas of law, at both the federal and state levels. At the federal level, consumer debt collection is primarily regulated by the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, while the New York State Debt Collection Procedures Law provides protections under state law. Both statutes seek to protect consumers from abusive, unfair, or misleading collection practices. Debt collectors must take care not to violate these laws and to adequately train staff to avoid liability and legal repercussions. Our attorneys have extensive experience in debt collection and judgment enforcement matters and can assist you in pursuing such claims and helping you to recover what is owed to you or your company under the law. Conversely, we also have the experience to protect you from creditors and to insulate and protect your assets.
