Attorneys and FDCPA: Are attorneys subject to the FDCPA?

Answer: If a principal and regular part of that attorneys practice is collecting third party debts, attorneys and law firms who use general and specific debt collection tactics such as sending dunning notices, (debt collection letters) and making phone calls are accountable under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA).

Don’t be intimidated by letters and phone calls from debt collection attorneys. They must adhere to the FDCPA rules and, when they violate the law, can be sued just like any other collector. Contact Fair Debt Attorneys For Consumers licensed in your state to learn whether the lawyer or law firm contacting you is violating your FDCPA rights. Victims of illegal debt collection tactics may be entitled to up to $1,000 in statutory damages, actual damages,  plus payment of attorney fees so don’t hesitate to get a Free Fair Debt consultation.
