I'm currently receiving letters from a debt collection law firm. The letterhead states the name of the attorney. Directly below it says "attorney at law". It appears based on my research that this attorney works for the county's public defender's office. It doesn't seem like he's in anyway actively engage in debt collection. I don't know much about FDCPA, but I also read somewhere that what I had described above, if true, may be an FDCPA violoation.
