We help protect people from unlawful debt collection harassment and tactics from original creditors, debt collectors and collection agencies. Wisconsin and Federal law provide important protections from harassing conduct. These laws provide for compensation for the emotional distress, humiliation and embarrassment that comes from the harassment.
Filing bankruptcy is not an easy decision for many consumers. We provide counseling to educate and assist consumers considering filing for bankruptcy or that are burdened with debt and need to understand what rights and options they may have. We handle consumer bankruptcies under Chapters 7 and 13 of the Bankruptcy Code. Before filing any bankruptcy, we discuss the nature and extent of the problems and whether other options are available that will provide alternative relief so that you can make an informed decision prior to electing to file for bankruptcy protection.
We defend people facing lawsuits brought by debt collection agencies and debt buyers. There are times when these lawsuits are brought against the wrong consumer or make illegal claims for recovery. Sometimes clients just need legal help to raise defenses and handle the litigation of such claims. Since these matters are defensive in nature, we do charge a fee for representation.
