Are you being sued for a debt you don’t owe? Have debt collectors harassed you? Has your vehicle been repossessed when it shouldn’t have? Are you angry and frustrated?The Indiana Consumer Law Group/The Law Office of Robert E. Duff is here for you.
Early in my career, I defended big companies like Wal-Mart, General Motors, Mitsubishi, Toyota and TransUnion. I saw how owning a lemon vehicle or having a credit report with errors that seemingly couldn't be fixed could devastate a person’s life. At the very least, it was an unwanted hassle that often left victims confused, angry and, most of all, frustrated.
I can recall being excited and saddened at the same time because the plaintiff had chosen a less-than-skilled lawyer -- excited because it made my job so much easier, but saddened because I felt bad for the client who obviously didn't know any better. What's even worse is that all too often I was also saddened and angered to see that a plaintiff's lawyer seemed to be looking out more for the lawyer's interests ($) than the client's. That's not right, and it's one of the reasons I decided to open my law office.
I believe that all litigants, big or small, deserve an even playing field in court. I also believe that consumers deserve a lawyer who will put their interests first.
If you believe you can't afford to hire a lawyer to bring a lawsuit against a debt collector under the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act (“FDCPA”), or bring a lawsuit for dealership fraud, unlawful repossession, or some other consumer rip off, you may be surprised. There are statutes that allow consumers to bring these actions and recover their attorney fees from the defendant. This means that if I agree to take your case, I can often do so without ever charging you a dime out-of-pocket for attorney fees.
I hope you will browse my website and learn more about my law firm and the areas of law in which I practice (especially suing debt collectors for violations of the FDCPA, which has become my passion). I also hope that you will contact me if you believe that I can be of service to you.
