I have many years experience in defending consumers from debt collectors, including years of representation of legal aid clients at no charge. I have lots of class action experience including Telephone Consumer Protect Act (co-counsel in second largest case in 25 year history of TCPA), FDCPA (first racketeering class action against debt collection industry using robo-signed affidavits in court cases- multi-million dollar settlement, and about 20 FDCPA class cases) Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) (unauthorized access to credit reports, background checks), unsolicited goods (un-ordered Martha Stewart books, multimillion dollar settlement), false marketing cases and many other types of cases. I also handle individual cases involving false credit reports, debt collector harrassment and abuse, including robo-calls to your cell phone where the collector is trying to reach someone else to collect a debt owed by someone else.
We DON"T handle bankruptcy cases for individuals, but we have a few of great lawyers to refer you to, including Tony Hervol, Hiedi McCloud, and Rick Flume.
We DO represent creditors in business bankruptcy cases and business collection cases--business to business only.
We DON"T try to collect debt from consumers, in or out of bankruptcy.

Ben Bingham is one of the few lawyers in San Antonio that is capable of handling bankruptcy court litigation. Litigation in state court is one thing, but litigation in bankruptcy court is quite different. Whenever someone asks me for a referral to an attorney that handles bankruptcy litigation in San Antonio, I give them Ben's contact information. Ben is also one of the few lawyers in San Antonio that has extensive experience in handling claims under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). I have referral several clients to him over the years and have only heard good things about him from those clients.
