State and Federal Laws Protect Consumers

Consumers in the State of Alabama are protected by a variety of state and federal laws. However, unless you hire an experienced Birmingham Consumer Rights attorney to represent your interests, the rights of consumers will almost always go unnoticed by a court of law. After judgment has been entered against you, it can be costly having a judgment vacated and thereafter asserting the legal defenses and/or claims that previously should have been raised or brought against the other side. If you have been served with any legal papers, do not ignore them, especially a summons and complaint. In addition to preventing a default judgment from being entered against you, you may be entitled to recover your out-of-pocket losses, attorney fees, and in certain cases, punitive damages resulting from the type of collection action taken.

Birmingham Consumer Rights Attorney Advocates for Victims of Debt Collection Abuse

Harwell Law Firm LLC represents consumers who have been victimized by illegal collection efforts of in-state and out-of-state collection agencies and junk debt buyers. We also offer reasonable fees for defending collection lawsuits based on either time spent defending a consumer or an agreed percentage of any settlement funds recovered from the defendant depending on the facts of each particular case. In certain cases, the firm will agree to a contingency fee based on the amount of money it can save a consumer from a debt they allegedly owe.
