A Debtor.  That is what debt collectors call you.  Debt collectors across the country call you a debtor with emotion in their voice.  Despite having any superiority to you they demand that you refer to them as either Mr. or Mrs X.  They will tell you that they want to work with you to resolve your debts; they are lying.  They will tell you that they understand your situation; they don’t.

How do I know?  I used to be a debt collector and I sat next to the same ones that are calling you now.

A Liar.  That is what debt collectors’ attorneys call you when they speak to me.  They instantly assume that you overextended yourself on purpose and that you somehow enjoy getting calls from unidentified numbers and having your voicemail box clogged with rude messages.  They claim that you planned to borrow money without the intention to pay it back and therefore you are dishonest.

How do I know?  I speak to their lawyers daily who defend their disgusting behavior while calling you names.

Fear.  That is how debt collectors get paid quicker.  They threaten you into making payments when they know you can’t afford them and they care less if their actions cause you to be homeless.  In fact, they encourage you to pay your credit cards before you pay your mortgage.  They know what buzz words to use and know exactly how to use those words as a weapon to coerce you into action that isn’t in your best interest.  They have “talk offs” – basically rebuttals rehearsed for every legitimate reason you have why your money went towards a more urgent expense rather than the bill they are calling you about.   For every legitimate reason you have these monsters have rehearsed the tone, content and delivery of their response.

How do I know?  I have helped tens of thousands of consumers across the United States fight back against illegal debt collection.  I could spend hours telling you repulsive stories about illegal debt collection activities but I won’t.  The fact that you found me likely indicates you have one to tell me.

Although I’ve heard thousands before, your story won’t become a number to me.  Yes, I’ve helped thousands of consumers fight back against collection agencies, but I will always remember your name.  I know how to stop debt collectors from harassing you because I used to be one.  Now, there is nothing I enjoy more than defending the little guy against these bottom-feeding creatures.

You’re probably wondering how a former debt collector who became a debt collection attorney is now one of the most recognized consumer advocates in the Country.  Well, that’s a longer story than we have time for here.  However, to make a long story short, one day in 2007, I realized that I hadn’t paid $100,000 for law school to wake up simply to go to work to make other people’s days worse.  The story of my exit that I often tell involves the day three files came across my desk around Thanksgiving.  The first file pertained to suing a local church for their unpaid bills.  The second file involved foreclosing on a homeless shelter that would require I displace hundreds of people into the shin deep snow.  The final file involved repossessing a car that I discovered its owner used to obtain medical treatment for her life threatening illness.  It was “that” day that I had an epiphany and realized I could no longer represent faceless debt collection companies.  I became disgusted and I quit.

I think the fact that you’ve taken so much time to read about me is pretty great.

My Client.  That is what I hope I get the opportunity to call you.

Thank you!!
I’m really happy I reached out to Jeffrey. A debt collector was wrongfully trying to collect a debt that I didn’t owe, and Jeffrey was confident that if we filed, he would win my case – and of course he did! He was responsive, informational, and very patient with all my questions. I asked so many questions though; everyone else can just chill out and hire Jeffrey. Big thanks to him and his team!

Totally STUNNED by this attorney!
First of all… I’ve NEVER called an attorney that ACTUALLY picks up his own calls! I thought I misdialed the # SERIOUSLY!!!…I had to keep asking, “Is this the Debt Collector Attorney? Is this the office of Jeffrey Hyslip?” I was SO confused…. Not only that, I’ve NEVER had an attorney even TALK TO ME!!!—for 22 MINUTES STRAIGHT!— Knowing full well that he wasn’t going to make a DIME off of me! His quote was, “I’m telling you this as a friend… this is what you need to do…!” I’ve never met this guy before in my life! And I may not ever! But he talked to me longer than ANY attorney that I’ve ever even PAID before!!!Who does that? These days… that kind of service just doesn’t exist anymore!!! So I was completely SHOCKED! Still can’t believe it…

Great Attorney Amazing Results
Attorney Jeffery Hyslip provided the best legal experience I have ever experienced. I was wrongfully sued by a debt collector in the wrong jurisdiction and he went to work for me and produced amazing results. If you have a legal issue with debt collector’s look no further it doesn’t get any better. Jeffery is meticulous and gets outstanding results.

I would highly recommend Mr. Hyslip. He is very helpful and caring. I was having a problem with a credit card situation and he went out of his way to assist me, even though it was not in his jurisdiction. He changed my opinion of lawyers.

Gave Me Peace Of Mind
Jeffrey helped me tremendously. I lost my husband, and an unscrupulous debt collection agency attempted to bully me into paying my dead husband’s unsecured credit card debt. He went right to work and helped me navigate the situation in a very professional manner. Treated me with complete respect and compassion for my situation. I will absolutely recommend him to anyone in a similar situation. Thank you Mr. Hyslip

Mr. Hyslip exceeds expectations and runs laps around the standard attorney. My valid FDCPA case was handled in an effective and professional manner.

Debit Lawyer Super Hero
Ever made a bad credit decision? Try your best to fix it, but you are treated like a low life, threatened, harassed by having a debit collector call you non-stop? But also having them call random family members and humiliate you by sharing personal information? That was my situation two months ago. I complained online to a BBB site and was contacted by Jeffery Hyslip. From our first conversation Mr. Hyslip was my champion. Jeffery knows the fair debit collection laws inside and out. He walked me through what needed to happen, filed my case against the "company". He never over promised, but he over delivered. Not only did they stop calling me, he won my case. My debit was cleared off my record, and he even was able to negotiate a settlement for me. Mr. Hyslip was professional, always answered my questions and is pretty much a lawyer super hero in my eyes. You never want to be in a situation to need a debit lawyer, but if you are in that really bad situation and feel you have no hope, I highly recommend Hyslip Legal.

Well we won, so cant beat that!
From start to finish Jeffery was patient, professional, and understanding about things. When I was needed for parts and he could tell I wasn't quite confident he made sure to call and put me at ease. I am very satisfied with the outcome of our case.

Great first experience.
I never needed a lawyer until recently and I got in contact with Jeffrey Hyslip and I was scared at first. I always thought that I would have to pay a lot of money. Jeffrey assured me that it was free and I was sceptical at first. He said that he would look into it and get back with me on Monday (Memorial Day). I didn't think he would get ahold of me since it was a holiday, but to my surprise he had kept his word and got ahold of me. He gave me great information about the company and great advice on what to do. He again assured me it was free. Thought it was too good to be true.

Excellent Lawyer
Although my case took three years Jeffrey Hyslip got me thousands and I have never had a lawyer work for me for free. I have Jeffrey on speed dial. I wish he took more cases because I was in a car accident and I wasn't impressed with my options. Jeffrey Hyslip got the calls to stop and now I have money in the bank and the debt collectors got nothing. My credit report is even clean now! Thanks Jeffrey Hyslip. If you want a good lawyer I am more than pleased with Jeffrey Hyslip!

Hyslip
Jeffrey handled my case from start to finish seemlessly. The entire process can be stressful but Jeffrey portrayed confidence closed my case with complete success. Jeffrey has some of the best acumen and expertise that came to light during my case. Look no further for a world class leader and expert to represent you.
