Abusive, deceptive, and unfair debt collection practices can destroy an individual’s credit, financial independence, and dignity. We can help.
Debt can eliminate future financial opportunities, trapping people in a cycle of perpetual debt and despair. It can limit a financially dependent spouse’s ability to flee an abusive partner, create a barrier to education and job mobility, and lead to a loss of housing and homelessness. For many, debt can feel like an insurmountable challenge to overcome.
