Consumer Finance includes credit disputes, debt disputes, and the collection of unclaimed funds.
Credit & Debt Disputes
There are particular laws that protect consumers against unscrupulous collection practices. There are also laws that protect consumers against erroneous credit reporting. At Starkey Law we use statutes such as the Federal Fair Debt Collections Practices Act and the Fair Credit Reporting Act to advocate on your behalf. We have a history of filing lawsuits and actually taking such cases all the way to jury trials.
Typically, unclaimed funds are held in escrow by the sheriff and tax agents for local governments. Such funds are also held by law firms that manage bank foreclosures. Hilliard Starkey Law represents consumers, homeowners, and/or previous homeowners, in the pursuit of any unclaimed funds they may be entitled to under Georgia law.
