Comprehensive protection from illegal debt collection practices

Stop Creditor Harassment and Intimidation – NOW! Know Your Rights:

Bankruptcy protection is a legal right offered by the government for individuals seeking to remedy a difficult financial situation and get a fresh start. Once you have filed for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy protection, the law is very specific about how and when creditors will be paid. The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) describes the methods creditors may use to collect a debt prior to or after a declaration of bankruptcy. Violations of the FDCPA are punishable by law and can include financial compensation and punitive damages for the wronged party.

All attempts to collect a debt – before or after bankruptcy:

At the Anaheim offices of Nicastro Piscopo, our attorneys have seen hundreds of clients who have suffered financial, emotional and professional harm resulting from aggressive and often illegal tactics used by creditors and collection agencies:

  • Threatening criminal prosecution to collect a debt
  • Violations of Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy orders
  • Deceptive credit counseling
  • Harassment of victims of identity theft
  • Improper debt reassignment after a divorce
  • Claims against a wrong party

Our reputation is well known to California collection agencies that have immediately ceased offending collection activities rather than face us before a judge.
