Debt Collectors Score Big Against Consumers by Supreme Court Ruling

In a 5-3 ruling, the United States Supreme Court has authorized debt collectors to demand repayment from debtors in bankruptcy proceedings. Hence, it is not the creditor’s job to tell the borrower there is no obligation to pay up.

Houston, TX – In a 5-3 ruling, the United States Supreme Court has authorized debt collectors to demand repayment from debtors in bankruptcy proceedings. Hence, it is not the creditor’s job to tell the borrower there is no obligation to pay up. However, expired debts have a statute of limitations that prohibits courts from enforcing them, but creditors can still try to persuade consumers into paying up through phone calls and letters. Shaw Defense can help stop the creditor’s ability to contact consumers by offering legal protection as an alternative to filing bankruptcy.   

Studies have shown that people spend an average of 3.5 hours per day worrying about their debts and finances which leads Texas residents to consider bankruptcy. Shaw Defense is an expert in formulating strategies on how to eliminate financial stress and help people break free from their debt and regain control of their life, without bankruptcy. “I will listen to the uniqueness of your situation and explain all of your options. But I don’t stop there. My firm has filed thousands of cases and also represented some of the largest lenders in the country”,  says Judge Jed Shaw, who is also an AV Preeminent Rated Attorney and the President of the law firm Shaw & Associates PLLC. His background as a judge provides access to legal knowledge that many bankruptcy attorneys do not have.

Shaw Defense sends Cease & Desist Letters to all unsecured creditors. After receiving the letter, creditors contacting consumers directly will be deemed unlawful—all communication must be through their firm. Hence, clients will stop receiving harassing telephone calls or letters. More importantly, they do not “settle” with these creditors and the only expense of the clients will be their fees which are reasonable and vary according to factors such as how much debt one has, the number of creditors they have, and which companies they are. Upon engagement with this Houston Bankruptcy Attorney, clients will immediately receive a Legal Services Agreement, setting forth all in writing. Additionally, they have a monthly installment program without interest as they truly understand that many people have financial problems.
