Are you are struggling financially right now it is likely that you have been, or will be, contacted by debt collectors.

Unfortunately it is not always that easy, and constant harassment from debt collectors will only make this bad situation worse. If your rights have been violates by a debt collector you should set up a free consultation with an attorney at your earliest convenience.
