FDCPA - Who pays my attorney?
Greg Artim and Clay Morrow
This may be the absolute best provision of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). The FDCPA allows for recovery of reasonable attorney fees.
What does that mean to you? In a nutshell, if you hire our firm, it means that you don't have to pay for an attorney out of pocket. Think about that!If you have been violated by a debt collector, whether they have threatened to garnish your wages, to throw you in jail, to sue you outside of the statute of limitations or to sue you in a jurisdiction that is not proper, not only do you have a claim against them, but, they have to pay your attorney to bring such a claim against them.
In that regard, we never charge a client to handle an FDCPA claim. The debt collector pays our fee, or we simply don't get paid.
This law is somewhat unique in allowing for the recovery of attorney fees. Most laws do not have such a provision.
We never charge a client for out of pocket attorney fees on FDCPA claims. The great thing about the FDCPA is that it forces the debt collector to pay our fees...
