Federal Court Rules Against Collector for Shortening Dispute Period

Homer v. The Law Offices of Frederic I. Weinberg & Associates

On November 9, 2017 the federal court in Philadelphia ruled in favor of Flitter Milz’ client in a case against the Law Office of Frederic I. Weinberg, a local collection law firm. 

Collection letters had been sent to our client that violated the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, which protects consumers from unfair collection practices.

Homer v. The Law Office of Frederic I. Weinberg & Associates alleged that the validation notice contained within the collection letter violated the law. This notice is to provide the consumer with a full 30 day period to dispute a debt — often necessary in this age of computer glitches and identity theft. The Weinberg law firm shortened the important time period for the consumer to act.

If you received letters from the Law Office of Frederic I. Weinberg any time in 2017, your rights may have been violated too.
