Texas Lawyers Stop Abusive Collectors
If you are getting non-stop abusive and harassing phone calls from debt collectors, this can make you feel trapped. Often, collectors will treat you with disrespect when you tell them that you cannot afford to pay, although you would like nothing more than to be able to pay the debts you owe. Instead of trying to work with you to create a payment plan you can afford, sometimes these collectors turn aggressive, speaking to you abusively, rudely and offensively. These abusive calls can make you feel like you have hit a brick wall and that you have no way out. We stop abusive collectors.
Too often, creditors and debt collectors resort to intimidating and abusive tactics, including constant telephone calls where they contact not only the consumer, but also the consumer’s family, friends, neighbors, and even the consumer’s employers. Not only do collectors contact family and supervisors of consumers, collectors also threaten them and tell them about the consumer’s alleged debt.
If a collection agency has used threats or harassment with you, call our Texas lawyers to stop abusive collectors. Contact us at 713.221.9088 today.

We Sue Abusive Debt Collectors and Help Stop the Harassment and Abuse
The law is clear: Consumers have protections from intimidating, harassing and abusive debt collection tactics. Federal law requires debt collectors are required to follow the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). There are legal ways to collect a debt and illegal ways to collect a debt. Unfortunately, many collectors choose the illegal way and operate as if there are no limits and no laws that restrict their conduct. However, there are limits and we can help stop abusive collectors from harassing you.
If debt collectors break this federal law, you can stop abusive collectors and sue them for money damages of up to $1,000, any actual damages you experienced as a result of the debt collector’s actions, reasonable attorneys’ fees and court costs.
