WTLS provides representation with debt collection lawsuits, repossession, debt collection harassment, garnishment, student loan collection, unfair sales practices, and contract issues.
Our attorneys and advocates provide high-quality legal representation to our clients in the following areas:
The law gives you rights when a bill collector tries to make you pay a debt. This law is called the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. It tells bill collectors what they cannot do to collect money from you.
Most used cars have problems and no warranty. The problems might show up right away or months later. Some dealers may hide a car’s problems or lie about them. Most used cars are sold “AS IS.” This means there is no guarantee the car is in good condition, and there is no return policy. If the car needs work, YOU pay for the repairs.
Creditors will often sue you to collect on debts they say you owe them. If they get a judgment against you, they can garnish your wages, seize personal property like cars and bank accounts, and place liens on real estate that you own.
What is a sworn account? It is a lawsuit with a signed paper from the company you owe. The law lets some companies sue you without proving that you owe the debt. They just sign a paper saying they swear that you owe the money.
Repossession is when a creditor (the bank, car dealer, or loan company) takes your car or other item that you used as security (collateral) for a loan. Repossession usually happens when you get behind on payments
