Recently, Cleveland consumer protection lawyer attorney Matthew Alden filed Chapter 7 bankruptcy for a husband and wife out of Youngstown, Ohio. In this debt, the couple had a loan for a car that had been repossessed. About six months after their bankruptcy case was resolved, a nationwide debt collection law firm sent them a notification that they had an unpaid debt. Under threat of a lawsuit, the collection firm was seeking this payment. Even though these creditors were well aware that our clients had successfully filed bankruptcy, they continued to seek payment. Attorney Alden assisted his clients in this unfair debt collection.
Under the Ohio Consumer Sales Practices Act and Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, attorney Alden sued the lender and the law firm for violating these acts. Both parties immediately ceased contacting our clients and the couple saw a successful sum in return.
