On November 10, 2010, I taped an episode of Peoples Law Forum, a program produced by the Gloucester County Bar Association for the local access channel of Comcast. This one was on collection law and what people could do to protect themselves. It is currently scheduled to air on January 17th and 20th, 2011, at 11:30am and 7:30pm.
What Is Discussed?
Among the topics of discussion were what you can do to protect yourself from creditor harassment, how collection lawsuits work and what creditors can do to collect a judgment, and how to deal with medical bills. After the session I realized that, although I had written articles on how to fight claims on old debt, wage executions and bank levies, I had not talked about the other topics on the web site.
As a result, I have just posted an article on how the Federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act can help shield you from harassment by debt collectors, and will soon post another one on dealing with medical bills.
People looking to avoid bankruptcy need to know how to deal with these issues, and I hope to provide some assistance with this with postings in the next few weeks.
