About John

Learn John’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Chapter 7 bankruptcy
    I help good people who find themselves overwhelmed by debt.

    30 years

  2. Debt collection
    Sue by a debt collector? There is a good chance you can win. I only defend people sued for debts; I do NOT represent creditors. I do not charge for an initial consultation and will let you know if I think it is worth it for you to hire an attorney after evaluating your case.

    30 years

  3. Employment and labor
    I represent employees cheated out of their wages or overtime as well as people misclassified as independent contractors. Under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act, there is a very good chance you are entitled to overtime even if your employer calls you 'management' or pays you a 'salary.'

    30 years

  4. Lemon law
    I helped people cheated by car dealers - whether they sold you a Lemon, lied to you about the financing, refused to make repairs, or wrongfully repossessed your car.

    30 years

  5. Litigation
    I sue debt collectors who harass or abuse people. I represent consumers in lawsuits against businesses that cheat or defraud them.

    30 years

  6. Debt settlement
    It is almost never worth it to pay a debt settlement company for help with your debts. Many of them a fraudulent and will leave you worse off than before you get involved with them. Contact me if you want advice about dealing with your debts or if you have questions about the debt settlement program you signed up with.

    30 years

I am a consumer rights attorney practicing law in Rhode Island and Massachusetts. 


The best part of my job is suing debt collectors who harass my clients and making them pay their victims - my clients.


I also represent consumers who have disputes with businesses, employees cheated out of their wages or overtime, car buyers stuck with Lemons and people in need of bankruptcy protection.

This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
Knowledgeable, efficient and honest
After receiving a summons regarding past debt, I inquired with several RI lawyers that specialize in debt. I found Mr. Longo to be the most knowledgeable, by far. I met with and hired Mr. Longo to address the situation. He handled it in a very timely manner and was successful. He also refunded me part of the retainer fee due to the case being resolved so quickly. I will hire him again if I ever need help with anything regarding his specialties. I strongly recommend Mr. Longo

Very Helpful and attentive.
I recently met with Mr. Longo for a consultation on a summons I received. He was very informative, offered tons of advice and he even drew a diagram to help explain how debt collection works. He even offered to meet me on a weekend day, which works great when you're a busy mom who works full time. I would recommend him to anyone who needs representation and advice.
