Debt Collection

Millions of Americans have debts in collection, mostly due to a financial catastrophe. Debt collectors are consistently a top source of consumer complaints. NCLC works to strengthen debt collection laws to protect consumers from abusive debt collection, to improve consumer protections in collection lawsuits, and to shield essential income and assets from creditors. NCLC supports attorneys defending consumers with debts or suing collectors violating consumer protection laws.
