Consumer Rights Law

The Robinson Law Firm PLLC provide representation to consumers in state of New Mexico regarding Civil lawsuits from Creditors and Civil lawsuits from bad debt buyers. We provide defense for consumers in debt collection lawsuits. If a consumer is being contacted by a debt collector or is being sued in debt collection lawsuit, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) provides a consumer with many safe guards.

The FDCPA was enacted in response to eliminate abusive practices in the collection of consumer debts. The FDCPA provides both broad and specific protections for consumers against debt collectors. Debt collectors are prohibited from doing anything unfair, deceptive, or abusive in their debt collection attempts. The FDCPA reflects this, as it contains a number of general provisions, such as:

  • Harassment or abuse – prohibits any conduct that has the natural consequence of harassing, oppressing, or abusing any person in connection with the collection of a debt

  • False or misleading representations – prohibits any false, deceptive, or misleading representation in connection with collection of any debt

  • Unfair practices – prohibits any unfair or unconscionable means to collect or attempt to collect a debt

Common abusive debt collection attempts include:
