About Me

 


At Skaar & Feagle, LLP, we strive to find ways to help consumers deal with consumer financial services issues in a way that delivers good value to the consumer.  We offer telephone consultations at no cost to the consumer.  Where appropriate, we offer a limited document review (by scan/email or by fax) to determine if we can help.  Skaar & Feagle, LLP never charges a consumer any amount to try to determine if we can help.  


 


In most cases involving the FDCPA, FCRA or other affirmative consumer claims, Skaar & Feagle, LLP is compensated by "fee shifting" - which means that the other side is fully responsible for paying the legal fees.  In these cases, the consumer does not have to pay anything out of their pocket.  In a defense case (where the other side started the case against the consumer), we generally will quote a flat fee for our services in the entire case through settlement or judgment.  Often we can accommodate clients with reasonable payment plans.  


 


Skaar & Feagle, LLP accepts cases of abusive and unlawful collection activity, debt defense, credit reporting of false or obsolete (old) information, high interest lenders (title pawns, payday loans), debt management plans, and illegal robo-calls to cellular telephones.   


 


Firm History


 


In 2009, I and my colleague Jim Feagle formed Skaar & Feagle, LLP.  Although our firm lauched on January 1, 2009, our professional relationship goes back to 1993 when we began working cases together as co-counsel.  


 


In the early and mid-1990's we began to concentrate on consumer financial services litigation.  Back then most of our litigation involved FDCPA cases against collectors for charging improper fees.  In the mid-90's, we began pursuing cases against the title pawn industry.  Toward the end of the 1990's, we brought consumer cases (including some class actions) against the store-front pay-day lenders that operated in Georgia.  


 


In the mid-2000's, we realized that to offer well-rounded consumer rights services, we had to take debt defense cases.  This combined well with our on-going FDCPA practice.  At that time, it seemed that virtually every debt defense client also had a number of valuable FDCPA cases. 


 


As the 2000's progressed, our practice expanded to include more litigation regarding credit reporting  issues, and a return to class action litigation.  Our practice grew with the addition of attorney Justin Holcombe.  Building on the foundation of our consumer law experience, we have branched out into litigation against robo-callers under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
