CHICAGO CONSUMER LAW ATTORNEYS
Have you been harassed by calls or letters from a debt collector? Do the people who are contacting or suing you even have a legal right to collect the debt? Are you having trouble making your mortgage payments? Are you considering bankruptcy but not sure if it’s right for you? Are your student loans overwhelming? These kinds of debt and credit hassles are the last thing you need to worry about but unfortunately they’re a part of your life. We help people figure out and get the best solution and take control of their financial future.
Consumer protection laws let you hold debt collectors, mortgage companies, and credit reporting agencies accountable for the harm they cause you. If we file a lawsuit on your behalf you don’t pay anything, if we win the debt collector, credit reporting agency or mortgage company pays our fees and your damages.
HOW WE HELP YOU TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR FINANCIAL FUTURE
DEBT COLLECTION DEFENSE
If you’ve been sued by a debt collector or creditor for a personal debt we may be able to get your case dismissed or settled for a fraction of the amount.
MORTGAGE LOAN MODIFICATIONS
We help struggling homeowners keep their homes by working with lenders to obtain a mortgage modification. If a lender breaks the law, we’ll know and can sue on your behalf to right the wrong.
While we try our best to help our clients avoid bankruptcy, sometimes it’s the best option for your new financial future. We’re not a bankruptcy mill. We take care of our client through the bankruptcy process and build their credit.
WE SUE DEBT COLLECTORS
The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) regulates debt collectors. When they break the law we’ll sue them to make them stop.
WE KNOW WHAT YOU’RE GOING THROUGH
Don’t panic! We know what you’re going through because we’ve been through it ourselves. We know from personal experience how debt collectors bully and intimidate people – and what it’s like when a debt or credit dispute puts a family’s home and future at risk. We offer affordable legal help to consumers, working people, and families just like yours throughout the Chicago area.
It doesn’t matter who you are. If your family’s future is at risk because of an ongoing debt or credit dispute, a consumer protection lawyer can stop the harassment, resolve the dispute, or defend you against a debt collection lawsuit. We routinely and effectively solve the most vexing and complicated debt and credit issues such as bankruptcy, mortgage modifications, and student loan payment optimization. When necessary, we also sue financial companies for breaking the law to get you the relief you deserve.
FEELING OVERWHELMED AND A BIT SCARED? WE’VE GOT YOU
FIRST, TAKE A DEEP BREATH. THEN CONSIDER THIS:
You have rights under the consumer protection laws
If you’ve been harmed, you have the right to compensation
If you’re eligible for compensation, we help you
WE PUT THE LAW TO WORK FOR YOU
Many people contact us for help with a single debt or credit issue, whether they’ve been sued to collect a debt, filing for bankruptcy, a mortgage modification, inaccurate credit reporting, harassment by a collection agency, or federal student loans. When they first contact us, many of our clients don’t know about the consumer protection laws available to them, the details of their consumer rights, or how much legal protection consumer laws actually offer to working people and families.
Chicago consumer attorneys Rob Harrer, Bryan Thompson, and the staff at the Chicago Consumer Law Center focus exclusively on consumer law and on helping consumers resolve debt and credit problems. We explain your rights under the FDCPA, the FCRA, and the other laws that protect you. We explain how the law applies in your own debt or credit dispute, and then we put the law to work for you – and solve the problem.
What Our Clients Say!
WHAT WILL GOOD LEGAL HELP COST?
Help from a consumer protection lawyer may cost a lot less than you imagine – if it costs you anything. When we find a violation and are able to sue the company many consumer protection laws “shift” the legal fees and require the other party to pay your attorney’s fees if you win. In cases where a fee is required – defending against a debt collection lawsuit, bankruptcy, mortgage modification and student loan assistance – we offer flat fees (no hourly rate surprises) and affordable payment plans.
Our attorneys work personally with every client at the Chicago Consumer Law Center, and we’ll do what it takes to help get you on your feet and walking to a solid financial future. We represent consumers, working people, and families throughout the Chicagoland area.
