Consumer Debt Protection & Defense We Fight Tirelessly for You

Long Island Consumer Debt Protection Lawyer

Protect Your Rights to Privacy as You Pay Off Debts

Under Federal and New York State law, we are all afforded certain rights that protect us from unfair and unscrupulous business practices, such as deceptive marketing, false advertising, consumer fraud, and identity theft. Statutes like The Fair Credit Reporting Act, the Truth in Lending Act and the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act are just some of the laws that are in place to protect consumers.

Have you been the victim of unscrupulous business practices? Call the Law Office of Gregory A. Goodman, P.C. at (800) 242-3740 for a free consultation to discuss your debt defense rights and devise a plan of action.

Protecting Your Rights Under Debt Defense Law

You deserve an honest, thoughtful, and zealous advocate to represent you and to protect your legal rights. No matter your financial situation, it is important that companies do not abuse you as a human being. Unfortunately, this is not always the case.

The Law Office of Gregory A. Goodman P.C. helps clients with situations like:

  • Consumer debt defense: Our firm has experience with legal representation for debt by working with creditors to make an agreement about what you owe when it must be paid, and even if it must be paid in full. There are certain laws in place to make sure you are treated fairly.
  • Credit card debt defense: If you were sued by your credit card company for debt default, our firm can help you uncover strategies to either give you time, lower the debt payment required, or even eliminate the debt altogether.
  • Medical debt defense: Once you have medical debt, it can feel like your finances are out of control. However, our firm has experience looking over your records, bills, and services to help you find a manageable, fair way to repay your debt.
  • Vacating judgments: Perhaps a lawsuit was brought against you and left you with massive bills to pay without the money you need to pay them. Our firm may be able to help you overturn this judgment and find a more manageable way to take care of your debt.
  • Consumer protection and fraud: Companies do not always keep their customers’ best interests at heart. If you were a victim of unfair or deceptive business practices, let our firm hold that company accountable to prevent it from happening again.

Your Rights as a Debtor

Not only are debt collectors required to treat you with dignity and respect, but you may have legal recourse if they have abused you in some way.

For example, debt collectors cannot:

  • Threaten you with a lawsuit
  • Contact you if you have requested they no longer contact you
  • Call you after 9:00 p.m. or before 8:00 a.m.
  • Contact you about your debt without providing written details about the debt within five days of the first call
  • Speak with anyone but you about your debt

If any of these actions have happened to you, it is important that you get started building a case right away. The Law Office of Gregory A. Goodman, P.C. may be able to help.
