Can collectors contact me after I've hired an attorney?
After engaging an attorney, you should inform any collection agency or collection law firm that you have legal representation. You may want to send the collector a letter and state clearly that you have engaged an attorney to represent your interest, specify the account(s) that the attorney will handle for you, and provide your attorney's name and complete contact information. Your letter should be sent to the collector by Certified Mail, Return Receipt, which is your written documentation of the request.
Once the collector has been notified that you have legal representation, they are no longer permitted to contact you. If you continue to receive collection calls or letters from the collector, your consumer rights may have been violated under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. You should contact Flitter Milz to discuss whether the collector has violated your rights and if you have a case to pursue against the collector.
