Stop Creditor Harassment
Stop Collection Calls ∙ Collect Damages From Harassing Creditors
The law in West Virginia is unique. If you are a debtor who has hired a lawyer, it’s illegal for your creditors to keep calling you. This is the law across the country, but in West Virginia, there are penalties and damage awards to compensate creditor-harassment victims, as well as making the creditor pay your attorney fees.
They will stop the harassment or we will make them pay.
At the Fayetteville law firm of Hamilton, Burgess, Young & Pollard, P.L.L.C.., our West Virginia creditor harassment attorneys have successfully settled hundreds of consumer harassment cases. We can help you stop collection calls and turn the tables on law breaking creditors.
What We Can Do For You
People are shocked to learn that a creditor harassment lawsuit might be able to help them avoid bankruptcy and make the creditor pay for its unlawful conduct. It’s amazing watching people’s reactions when they learn their rights.
The common creditor harassment case looks something like this:
- Bankruptcy: A client comes in for bankruptcy as a solution for insurmountable debt. As part of the bankruptcy process, the client tells the creditors that our counsel has been retained.
- Creditors continue harassing the client: West Virginia law is clear that once counsel is retained, the creditors must call the lawyer and never call the debtor about it again. But many creditors continue to call the clients and violate our laws.
- Lawsuit: We sue the creditors under West Virginia debtor-protection law, which provides for statutory damage awards for creditor harassment. If your debtors keep calling you after you hire a lawyer and ask them to stop calling you, they must stop or face our attorneys who protect your rights.
Often our clients who come to us for bankruptcy proceedings end up not needing it. We have stopped the creditors from harassing them and settle their debt.
