Debt Relief Attorney
Statistics say that debt in the US has increased by 11% over the last ten years to $134,643 on average. Bringing credit cards, auto loans and mortgages into the mix, the debt total pushes above a trillion dollars.
As most of us know, debt collection agencies are not always the friendliest. Their sole aim is to get these debts paid, either by hook or by crook. With all this debt in the US, these agencies have increased rapidly in numbers over the years, with about 6000 of them in practice, as the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau estimates.
Most people try their very best to pay off their debts. However, sometimes life happens, an unexpected medical bill, auto repairs, or something goes wrong with your home. This can create even more stress trying to figure out what needs to be paid first. The situation gets worse when a debt collection agency starts breathing down one’s neck. The situation pushes people to take rather dangerous decisions without legal consultation. To make matters even worse, some debt collection agencies do not adhere to the obtainable standards for debt collection, thus infringing on the rights of debtors in the process.
