Judgment enforcement & debt collection have become among the most sought after practice areas in the last few years. The weak economy has hindered the already difficult challenge of collecting debt and judgments. A creditor’s ability to collect from a debtor is governed under a web of federal and state legislation that regulates the credit and collection industry, as well as provides consumer debtors protection from abusive and deceptive practices. This convenient, live telephonic seminar describes the laws governing the process and outlines the best practices to avoid lawsuits from debtors. Our nationally recognized faculty will cover actions available to consumers as well as strategies for attorneys representing creditors. Our faculty will also discuss judgment enforcement, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, the Fair Credit Reporting Act, ethical rules, trust account procedures, and other regulatory issues. Registration includes access to complete written course and reference materials. Agenda:
