FDCPA Attorneys - Morrow & Artim, P.C.
We sue debt collectors!
Its no secret that people are defaulting on credit card accounts in records numbers. Its also no secret that unsrupulous debt collectors are doing whatever they can to collect on that delinquent debt. Make no mistake, debt collection is a huge, profitable industry, and overly aggressive tactics are being used on a daily basis.
Fortunately, there is a law called the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) that provides protections to consumers who are dealing with a debt collector. The FDCPA is a very powerful statute that gives you the ammunition to fight back against these unsavory collectors.
The FDCPA, in a nutshell, says that a debt collector cannot engage in or even threaten to take any illegal actions when attempting to collect a debt. Examples of illegal actions can include harrassment, calling a neighbor or relative and discussing the debt with them, contacting your employer, threatening jail time and threatening wage garnishment, among others.
If a debt collector violates the FDCPA, you can turn the tables and file a lawsuit against them! To make it even better, the FDCPA allows for recovery of your reasonable attorney fees. Its one of the few laws in existence that have such a provision. Think about that, you end up with a free attorney if you have an FDCPA claim. The debt collector pays our fee or we simply do not get paid.
We vigorously pursue debt collectors who violate the law. The great thing about pursuing an FDCPA claim through our office is that we do not charge a retainer to our clients. We make the debt collector pay our fee every time!
Whether you are being harrassed by a debt collector, receiving threatening letters or voice messages, receiving wage garnishment threats or are facing any other type of issue with an unsavory debt collector, we can help. As always, we offer a free no obligaton case review to any potential client who may have a claim under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.

Why hire Morrow and Artim?
Two words, experience and reputation. We have both, in abundance.Clay Morrow handles the FDCPA matters at our firm. Clay handles about a dozen FDCPA claims per month, with just about half of them resulting in lawsuits. (The others settle prior to litigation). Greg Artim assists with the FDCPA matters and defends against the credit card lawsuits filed by these collectors. We have over 35 years combined experience in handling similar legal matters.
As far as reputation, ask any of our peers about us. We have been counsel on several important reported decisions regarding FDCPA and credit card issues, we've been lead counsel on several class action lawsuits, we've been interviewed by both television and leading online companies about credit card/collection matters, and quite frankly, the debt colelctors themselves have asked us to stop suing them so much. In exchange for that request, they have offered to work with us to settle more cases in an amicable fashion without the need for litigation.
