Fair Debt Collection Practices Act Violations and Modification

We were hired by our client to defend their home against foreclosure. The case was actively litigated for some time and the case was nearing trial, however during a routine review of the documents associated with the case it was discovered that the client’s creditor had mailed certain documents with technical errors relating to the amounts due upon the mortgage and when precisely those sums came due we filed a lawsuit against the creditor for violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. We were ultimately able to resolve the client’s foreclosure action with a modification of their loan a short time afterwards.
