Skilled bankruptcy attorney uses knowledge of relevant laws to fight invalid claims
Maryland residents have the right to contest invalid debts due to such reasons as:
- Debt collection is time-barred — In Maryland, creditors have three years to collect on an unpaid debt. If they try to sue after this period, I can request dismissal of the case.
- Creditors use threats, harassment or other illegal methods — The federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and the Maryland Consumer Debt Collection Act prohibit collectors from intimidating debtors, threatening them or contacting third parties about the debt. I can pursue the appropriate remedies if a debt collector or creditor tries to secure payment by such means.
- Erroneous credit report — Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act, you have the right to access your credit information and to correct errors. I can review your credit report to evaluate potential errors and find ways to improve your score.
If you are being harassed by creditors or sued for a bad debt, having a seasoned attorney by your side can make all the difference.
