Michigan Bankruptcy Attorney Personalized & Skilled Representation

Stopping Creditor Harassment

Are you dealing with creditor harassment in Michigan?

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) prohibits debt collection agencies from harassing debtors, and requires them to adhere to strict collection guidelines. Are you being contacted by collection agencies seeking payment on money they are owed? Knowing your rights can prevent abuses, and help reduce any stress you may be experiencing from unethical collection practices.

FDCPA laws forbid creditors from:

  • Engaging in false, misleading or deceptive representation
  • Making threats
  • Using derogatory or obscene language
  • Making repeated phone calls
  • Falsifying information any information regarding the money you owe
  • Contacting you directly when you are represented by an attorney
  • Calling before 8:00 a.m. or after 9:00 p.m. at night
  • Contacting you at work if your employer prohibits collection calls
  • Continuing to contact you after being notified in writing not to

Creditor harassment is a serious matter and should be addressed immediately when it occurs. The best person to speak with regarding creditor abuse is a Michigan bankruptcy attorney who is well-versed in FDCPA legislation. A bankruptcy lawyer will know how to protect your rights and what to do to stop the harassment.

I was very impressed that you returned every phone call in a timely manner. You were able to explain exactly what was going to happen in words that "we" could understand.

  • Professional, competent, empathetic attorney.

    “My husband and I were forced into a position to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. We were devastated and mortified that we had to choose that route, but Tom eased our stress about the filing and court hearing process, as he thoroughly explained what Chapter 7 entails, as well as exactly what to expect during and after the filing process; he was accurate on each point that he advised us on. Tom also kept in frequent contact with us and responded quickly to any questions or concerns that we had while we worked with him. Tom's expertise and tact was invaluable for us, and we will absolutely recommend him to any of our friends and relatives that may find themselves in similar positions to ours. Thank you, Tom, for your dedicated help during this process.”

  • Tom Hensel is definitely the right attorney to call!

    “I was referred to Tom Hensel by a friend. My first impression was not only was Tom professional but he's so kind and caring too. He helped my husband and I through an embarrassing, scary situation and definitely made it more positive one. He guided us through our options and helped us make the right decision for us which ended up being a chapter 7 bankruptcy. Tom was so knowledgeable and helped us throughout the whole process. He never once made us feel uncomfortable or dumb when we had questions. He was also very easy to get a hold of when questions would come up and would always return our calls and emails promptly. I strongly recommend Tom to anyone going through this kind of financial nightmare. Do yourselves a favor and call him right away. He will help you get on the right path again. Our only mistake was waiting so long to call him!! When we in court waiting our turn all the other attorneys referred to their clients as "The debtors" Tom on the other hand acknowledged us by our names. Little things mean a lot and that left a lasting impression with us. Tom Thank You again for all your help!!”
