When clients come to Leavengood, Dauval & Boyle, P.A. for help with their debts, one of the services that are provided free-of-charge is the ability to refer debt collection calls – and the stress and anxiety that is associated with them – to our attorneys. Once a creditor or debt collector knows that a consumer is represented by an attorney regarding a debt, they are prohibited from calling or writing that consumer in an attempt to collect the debt. Specifically, the Florida Consumer Collection Practices Act (“FCCPA”) specifically prohibits debt collection from a consumer once an attorney is known to be involved and the creditor or debt collector has the attorney’s contact information.
