If you are part of a legal case involving debt collection, you may want to hire a debt collection attorney. A lawyer with experience in debt collection can help fight for your rights as a consumer, defending you against a debt collector or creditor.

Many laws detail consumer protection laws as well as debt collection regulations, requirements, and procedures, and a debt collection attorney can help determine which legal strategies will be most effective in your case. In some cases, debt collection attorneys work for a percentage of the amount owed and only receive payment when you collect your money.
