» Print This Page

Case Outcome:  Dismissal of debt collection lawsuit, and Client recovers money due to FCCPA violation

Plaintiff: Barclays Bank Delaware

Plaintiff’s Law Firm: Hayt, Hayt & Landau, P.L.

Plaintiff’s Attorneys: Ms. Dana Stern, Esq.

Our client contacted us after being sued by Hayt, Hayt & Landau, P.L. who represented Barclays Bank Delaware.  After reviewing the documents, it was apparent that our client was being sued in the wrong county.  This is violation of the FCCPA (Florida Consumer Collection Practices Act).  After we were retained, we immediately pointed out the debt collector’s violations of the debt collection laws and submitted evidence proving the violation.  Shortly afterwards, we negotiated a settlement that required the debt collector not only to dismiss their lawsuit without collecting a penny from our client, but to actually pay our client for the violation and fix his credit reports.  Our client recovered the maximum statutory damages for the debt collector’s violation of the FCCPA.
