Nation's Largest Bankruptcy Law Firm Focuses on Protecting Consumer Rights

After a Spike in Consumer Complaints Against Debt Collectors, Macey Bankruptcy Law Developed a Service Aimed at Upholding the Laws of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - Feb 22, 2012) - Since 2006, complaints to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) have doubled, forcing Americans to take debt collectors to court for violations of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, and win.

There are thousands of untold stories that show that debt collection harassment is a frequent occurrence, some stories so bad that there is no line from which some collectors will go so low.

Fair Debt Helpers, a service of Macey Bankruptcy Law, has been helping consumers fight back against collection agencies since 2007. "We've recovered over $5,000,000 against collection agencies nationwide," says, Jeffrey Hyslip a Managing Attorney at Macey Bankruptcy Law.

Debts are a legal responsibility that must be paid off. It is the job of a collector to have their facts straight and contact you under the guidelines of the FDCPA.

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) provides a mechanism to fight back against the collection agencies. "If collection agencies violate the law, it's important to know your rights. As a victim you can take legal action to implement those rights and force the collection agencies to pay your attorney fees," says Hyslip.

Macey Bankruptcy Law is the largest and most experienced consumer bankruptcy practice in the country. In 2007, the attorneys started a consumer protection department -- Fair Debt Helpers.

"Fair Debt Helpers was created because we got fed up with collection agencies harassing consumers. We wanted to assist clients in enforcing their rights under the FDCPA," Hyslip concludes.

Helping more consumers nationwide, Macey Bankruptcy Law now represents all consumers, dealing with bankruptcy and harassing creditors. If you think you are being harassed, you don't need to handle it alone. Call Fair Debt Helpers at 866-339-1156
