FDCPA Permitted Communications

Unless given permission by a court of law, a debt collector can only call between 8 am and 9 pm in the time zone of the debtor.

Debt collectors can call you at work, unless the debtor or someone at the place of work tells them that it is not permitted. You should send a written conformation that these calls are not permitted to document the discussion.

If you are represented by an attorney and the debt collector knows the contact information of your attorney, they may not contact you unless your attorney is non-responsive or the attorney gives permission to contact the debtor directly.

All requests to stop calls from debt collectors are ineffective unless you sent them the request in writing. The debtor can request that phone calls be stopped and also that most written communications be stopped. The debt collector is still allowed to contact the debtor by writing to let you know that they will stop communications, that other legal remedies will be pursued, and that documents you send them are considered "official" communications when received by them.

If you need to stop a debt collection, contact a Florida Debt Collection Lawyer at our firm to discuss your options.

Client Reviews
"As a real estate agent, I have been involved with many property transactions where I needed a probate attorney to help facilitate the transaction. I have used the services of Mr. Goldman and his staff over the last several years and continue to use them on a regular basis. His office has been able to navigate the court system and help estates sell their property quickly and efficiently..." Michael Starling
"I've had Mr. Goldman do my entire estate planning as well as my gun trust. I highly recommend him and his firm. If you're planning a gun trust, trust no one else Mr. Goldman is one of if not the best versed on this topic." Howard
“Great service is an understatement. We bought several properties that Mr. Goldman handled for his clients. The communication and explanation of everything was terrific. I would definitely recommend him for all of your real estate needs.” Kassandra
“After struggling with 2 probate cases prior to hiring attorney Goldman I was extremely apprehensive during the hiring phase. Not only did Attorney Goldman assure me they could take care of this his office was wonderful. Jennifer was assigned to my case and she was wonderful and were able to guide another probate case I had saving me additional time and frustration. Highly recommend this office.” Debbie
