Job loss, reduced wages, and medical issues can increase your debt burden. When you are barely able to make your living expenses, servicing debt becomes a low priority. This is an understandable situation for everyone but the debt collectors.
Debt collection practices are aggressive and often amount to harassment. Some behaviors amount to violations of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and those are actionable. You could receive compensation for emotional distress or inappropriate garnishment. There are many ways a debt collection situation can be assessed and that is why you require a knowledgeable attorney.
B Watson Legal, LLC is located in Metairie, Louisiana and serves South Louisiana with a mobile law practice that comes to you. We can review your debt collection experience and craft a defense that could reduce the amount owed, stop garnishments, and cease harassing behavior. Since we also practice bankruptcy law, that remains an option for you too if you wish to be relieved of all debt and not just from the collector causing you problems.
Appointments can occur at your residence, over video conference, and even through email and text. Contact us today to schedule a consultation.
