Florida Collection Defense Help

Collection Letter Response

Russell Law and Patrick Russell, Esq. , a Miami Debt Collection Lawyer, are available to defend you in a Florida collection defense matter or case.  If you receive a collection or demand letter from a collection agency or a law firm, you should immediately seek the assistance and counsel of a lawyer. Russell Law will defend you against overzealous collectors and protect your rights in Court against unjust claims.  Normally, all collection or demand letters have deadlines to either resolve or dispute the claim. As a practical matter, you do not want to ever waive any of your rights.  As such, the initial collection or demand letter should be treated very seriously. Collection activities are regulated by both Federal and State law and they cannot be misleading or inappropriate.  We can assert claims on your behalf against a collector that violated the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act or its Florida equivalent.  Further, Russell Law can assist you in protecting your rights and responding intelligently to a collection letter by disputing and/or seeking verification of the debt.

Collection Lawsuit Response

Just the same, if you receive service of a lawsuit, you should immediately seek the help of a lawyer. All lawsuits have time deadlines by which you must file a written response. Calling the Court or the person who filed the lawsuit against you is not enough. Unless you get a written extension of time, you must file your written response in a timely manner.  The Florida Rules of Civil Procedure require that your written response be in a certain form and format. The failure to observe the Florida Rules of Civil Procedure may result in a default being entered and the entry of a final judgment against you.
