ATLANTA, GA, July 29, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Many people in today's economy are having a hard time keeping up with life's vast expenses. At times they become too much to bear and result in large amounts of debt that may become seemingly insurmountable.
Creditors are going to attempt to collect these debts from you, but they have to comply with federal and state regulations when doing so. Far too often these creditors unlawfully attempt to collect debts and harass consumers for their debts.
Creditors have to comply with very specific laws when attempting to collect a debt from you such as the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, which prevents creditors from engaging in abusive collection tactics, and the Georgia Fair Business Practices Act, which inhibits deceptive and unfair business practices.
Hiring an attorney to represent you increases your chances to avoid garnishment and possible collection litigation. An attorney can send a cease and desist letter on your behalf in order to stop creditors from hounding you, or defend you if you have already been served with a suit. Failure to do so can result in a default judgment being entered against you followed by methods to recover on the judgment via wage and bank garnishments, seizing of personal property and more.
"We are a Georgia law firm with years of experience representing clients in dire financial straits. Attempting to defend yourself from a creditor coming after you to collect on your looming debt, usually with a team of lawyers at their disposal, is a very dangerous game to play," says Jeff Lall, attorney at Freeman Saxton, P.C. "Equipping yourself with an experienced legal team increases your chances of getting out of your debt and highlighting the practices of the creditor, which could be very well be illegal. Such a finding could exonerate you of your debts."
