Protecting the Rights of Consumers
For Over 25 Years
Edelman Combs Latturner & Goodwin, LLC
Please contact us if debt buyers Midland Credit Management or Midland Funding are attempting to collect money from you in Illinois, or have attempted to do so within the last year, either by lawsuit or collection letters and calls.
Midland Funding and Midland Credit Management file hundreds of collection lawsuits in Illinois each month, some through in-house counsel and some through law firms. Midland Credit also sends thousands of collection letters. Many contain violations of law.
We can help you both defend claims against you and assert your rights under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and other laws. We have in some cases found what we believe to be violations of applicable debt collection laws in their documents.
Our attorneys have a total of more than 100 years experience handling consumer lawsuits, including both lawsuits by consumers and lawsuits against consumers. One of them wrote the book on defending collection lawsuits. D. Edelman et al., Collection Litigation: Representing the Debtor (Illinois Institute for Continuing Legal Education 2008, 2011, 2014, 2019, 2022 editions), as well as the chapters in Illinois Institute for Continuing Legal Education publications on the Truth in Lending Act, Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, Telephone Consumer Protection Act, and mortgage-related claims.
We look forward to hearing from you about this or any other consumer legal problem you wish to discuss.
We offer free consultation to persons with debt collection problems. Please send whatever letters, court papers, or other documents relate to your problem and we will review without charge. Include envelopes with the letters if you have kept them. If we conclude that we can be of assistance to you, we charge modest fees for defending foreclosure and collection lawsuits. We take virtually all affirmative cases on a contingency.
