Consumer / Debtor Defense

Debtor Defense for All Income Levels – Consumer, Student Loans, & More

The Maul Law Group, PLLC offers sensible, straightforward, and sophisticated debtor defense for all income levels. Whether you are being harassed by credit card companies or national collection agencies claiming you owe them for past student loan, medical, or consumer debt, Maul Law is available to assist you.

Under state and federal law, consumers have rights that protect them from illegal debt collection practices. If a debt collector violates your rights by engaging in illegal debt collection tactics, it is considered creditor harassment, and the creditor can face significant legal consequences under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and accompanying state statutes.

You’re Not Alone

If you’ve been dealing with a collector that is harassing you about a past debt, you may feel scared, hopeless, and unsure of what you can do to put an end to the maltreatment. When a dent collector calls you at work, makes phone calls to your family members, verbally insults you, or threatens to take certain types of legal action against you, it’s time to get help.

Help is Available

If you are having debtor issues of any sort, pick up the phone or fill out a contact form on our website. Maul Law is happy to provide you with a consultation about your debt(s) worth $250.00 for absolutely free. After reviewing your matter, Maul Law will be able to provide you with:

  • A representation plan to meet your specific financial needs and circumstances, including a list of potential legal options that may keep you out of court and prevent you from filing bankruptcy
  • A series of proactive measures that can put an end to harassing letters, phone calls, and electronic communications
  • An analysis of any claims you may have under federal and state law that could potentially turn your debt into dollars while paying for your attorney fees
  • Full assurance that your case is being taken seriously and that your interests will be defended vigorously in accordance with state and federal law

Maul Law understands that debt collection attorneys and companies are often abrasive, rude, and enjoy skirting the letter of the law to collect on debts they may not be legally entitled to. Moreover, our attorneys know that unexpected events and life circumstances may limit a person’s ability to fully pay on incurred debts. All our attorneys ask is that you don’t despair; help is on the way.

The sooner you get in touch with Maul Law, the sooner we can help. Do not ignore letters and phone calls from alleged creditors and above all else, do not discard any court or other legal notices you receive. Get in touch with us immediately to give yourself peace of mind and place you and your family back on the road to financial stability.
