I was born and raised in Southeast Michigan. I received my Bachelor's degree from Michigan State University. I then attended the University of Detroit Mercy (UDM) School of Law. While in law school, I was a Law Dean's Scholarship Recipient and was on the Dean's List. After excelling in my first year of law school, I applied for and was accepted into the Master of Business Administration program at UDM.

While in law school, I was a legal intern for Quicken Loans Inc., a Judicial Intern at the Wayne County Third Circuit Court, a law clerk for the Wayne County Corporation Counsel, and a law clerk representing indigent clients at the Immigration Law Clinic at UDM School of Law.

I then went on to work for a nation-wide consumer protection law firm. My worked focused on protecting consumers in California and throughout the entire United States against credit reporting agencies, banks, debt collectors and credit furnishers. 

I have extensive experience in representing clients under the Fair Credit Reporting Act, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, and California's Rosenthal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. I have represented thousands of people in enforcing their rights under the law to get their credit reports corrected and I have helped put money in their pocket for the harm they suffered. Additionally, I have represented thousands of people against debt collectors and banks, resulting in monetary settlements, debt forgiveness and even getting collection tradelines deleted.

Outside of work, I am spending time with my wife and 2 daughters.

Highly recommend!!!
I recently had the pleasure of working with Hammoud Law, and I am extremely satisfied with the results. From the very beginning, Youssef took the time to listen to my concerns and thoroughly explain my options. He and his team were always quick to respond to my questions and kept me informed every step of the way. He took the time to review each of my credit reports, and discuss the issues with me. I could immediately tell that Youssef knew what he was doing and I was working with the right firm. The legal process can be overwhelming, but Youssef made it as easy as possible for me. They were patient, understanding, and always had my best interests at heart. He kept me updated along the way and in the end, we were able to achieve a favorable outcome for my case. While it normally takes cases filed in Court a long time to resolve, Youssef managed to get the matter resolved quickly because of his extensive experience and well-known reputation. I am extremely grateful for their hard work and dedication. Having my life back on track is the biggest relief and it’s all thanks to Youssef. I highly recommend Hammoud Law, P.C. to anyone in need of a top-notch consumer protection lawyer. They truly go above and beyond for their clients, and I am so thankful to have had them on my side. Five stars all around!

Mr. Hammoud was a great help. He not only was able to get the credit reporting agencies to correct their reporting errors, but he was also able to get then to provide compensation for harm that the errant reporting caused. Highly Recommended!!

Review for Youssef H Hammoud
If there is a million stars instead of 5 stars, Youssef will get a million stars from me. During the past 10 months, I was very depressed and I had gained 30 pounds due to my debt problem that I thought had no solutions. My stress level gives my heart a lot of pressure and I started to develop pain in my heart and I was losing a lot of sleep. Fortunately , Youssef was there for me and he turned it around 360 degrees! Now my debt is gone. No more calls from creditors. My financial situation is at best.Youssef approach is effective and extra ordinary ! His team members namely Tegan,Lia and Justin are the best and Youssef group are truly professional.

Very pleased
I was receiving numerous phone calls from one particular debtor. Sometimes up to 4 per day on each of my phones, cell and home. I asked them several times to please stop calling and communicate in written form only. They never stopped. I'm in my late 60's, on a fixed income and fighting cancer. The calls were causing anxiety and interrupting much needed rest. I had been working with Youssef Hammoud for awhile in conjunction with a debt relief company. After some time, I hired him to help me with this harassment as it was becoming too much for me to handle. From day one, he was diligent, kind, and eased my mind that it would soon be taken care of. He kept me informed of all steps taken all through the process. We finally received a settlement and my debt was paid. I now not only am free of this company but have a few dollars to ease my financial situation. I would recommend Youssef to anyone who finds themselves in a credit and/or debt problem.

Letter of Recommendation
My wife and I were receiving monthly statements from a company we did not owe any money to. For months we received a notice, and each month additional money was added. I spoke to Mr. Youssef H. Hammoud after receiving the paperwork we sent him, he took our case. Within 5 months time span, he had our problem resolved with a settlement. During this time period he stayed in constant contact to keep us informed. Mr.Hammoud, we want to thank you for all you did, for your extreme professionalism. Jim and Theresa T.

Youssef made this process very easy for me. I was getting multiple calls a day and it was starting to get stressful. Once hired the calls stopped, he always kept me updated with any new information he had and I couldn’t be any more satisfied with what they bring to the table.

Above and beyond
I was referred to Yousef by Candice Arroyo, another attorney. My wife and I had some incorrect credit info on our credit reports. Yousef and his team, in a consulting capacity, aided and guided us through the process of disputing the incorrect info. The lenders corrected and updated their reporting to the credit report agencies. I cannot say enough good things about Yousef and his team, well done. They will be my first call if I ever have problems of this type again.

Teacher
Youseff successfully helped me negotiate a higher settlement agreement from a debt collector who took unauthorized funds from my checking account. From the moment I was referred to Youseff he took the time to listen to my concerns and stayed in constant communication with me throughout the process. I was always well informed about the status of my case. He was very thorough ensuring that no details were missed, which led to the wonderful surprise of much larger settlement agreement than I ever could of imagined. I would recommend Youseff to anyone wishing to quickly and efficiently settle and outstanding case.
