COOK COUNTY CONSUMER PROTECTION ATTORNEYS FIGHTING FOR CONSUMERS’ RIGHTS
Even if you work hard, pay your bills and taxes on time, and do your best to be responsible, you can still have trouble being plagued by incorrect credit reports or being sued or harassed by a debt collector.
You may even, without knowing it, be the victim of illegal debt collection practices.
At the Chicago Consumer Law Center, we help people in Cook County prevail when they have disputes with creditors and collection agencies. We find solutions to the most difficult consumer problems – solutions that won’t destroy your finances or your future.
HOW WE HELP COOK COUNTY CONSUMERS
Let a Cook County consumer protection lawyer at the Chicago Consumer Law Center help you if:
- You’ve been sued by a debt collector or creditor.
- You’re wondering if bankruptcy is right for you or if there are other options.
- You’ve been harassed or bullied by a collection agency.
- Your credit report includes incorrect information.
An attorney at the Chicago Consumer Law Center will review the details, outline your legal options, and explain how we can help.
WE STOP THE HARASSMENT
When you’re a client at the Chicago Consumer Law Center, if a collection agency or a creditor contacts you, refer the agency or creditor to your attorney. At that point, their contact with you must cease, and the creditor or collection agency will have to deal with us instead.
A number of federal and state laws protect you from abusive collection practices. A collection agency or a creditor may still violate your rights, but the law allows you to sue and seek compensation for any harm they cause.
SHOULD YOU SPEAK TO A COOK COUNTY CONSUMER ATTORNEY?
If you’re in or near Cook County, and if your answer is “yes” to even one of these questions, talk promptly to a Cook County consumer protection lawyer:
- Have you been sued or harassed by a creditor or a collection agency?
- Are the details in your personal credit report inaccurate?
If your answer is “yes” to one or more of these questions, arrange to speak with us and learn more.
IF YOU THINK YOU CAN’T AFFORD AN ATTORNEY
Help from a consumer protection lawyer in Cook County may not cost as much as you think. In fact, in many consumer cases where you have to sue a company, like a debt collector, for wrongdoing, an attorney will not cost you anything. Most consumer protection laws make the other side pay for your attorney if you prevail.
In other cases, such as defending a collection lawsuit or bankruptcy, we offer affordable rates and payment plans accepting most credit cards. We’ll take whatever legal steps are necessary to stop the harassment, resolve the dispute, and protect your rights.
