How to Find a New York Debt Collection Harassment Attorney

Experienced Consumer Rights Advocate

With the downturn in the economy there has been a severe increase in the amount of people in debt. This has also lead to a sharp increase in the amount of debt collection harassment taking place. (There are simply more people to be victimized by debt collectors). This sharp increase has also led to the emergence of "national law firms" seeking to represent consumers against unscrupulous debt collectors. These "national law firms" will often not have a real office in your area, and you may never even be able to meet with an attorney. They will often seek to do everything over the internet, or via phone. This could lead to a situation where your lawyer may prefer to settle your case cheaply so that they don't have to travel to New York for Court conferences. Additionally, these firms will often times not be familiar with the local judges and procedures.

The Law Office of Joseph Mauro does operate like that, and believes that most clients are far better served being represented by a New York debt collection abuse attorney from their area who is familiar with the people and practices of the area. You should know your lawyer, and your lawyer should know you. Bringing a federal lawsuit under the FDCPA should not be done lightly. You should be able to meet with an attorney in person and describe your financial difficulties, and your potential case. After meeting with an attorney and describing your entire situation, if it is determined that bringing a lawsuit is advisable, you should be assured that your attorney is going to physically be there for you.

The Law Office of Joseph Mauro is licensed to practice in New York.  If you or the debt collector is located in New York, please feel free to contact my office
