Can you help me file a No Fee Lawsuit against Glasser and Glasser, P.L.C?
Complaints against Glasser and Glasser cite problems resulting from dissatisfaction with the law firm’s focus on legal procedure over the personal interests of consumers. In May 2017, a complainant indicated he had been unable to work as a provider of roadside assistance because his license had been suspended for non-payment as a result of a communication error with G&G. The complainant had contacted G&G the previous March and requested “the payoff amount.” The following month, he received a letter informing him his license had been suspended for non-payment. When he contacted Glasser and Glasser to find what had gone wrong, he “was told he had asked the wrong question and instead of asking for a payoff, he should have asked what would pay my account to completion.” The complainant indicated he should not reasonably be expected to make such distinctions; that he had a perfect payment record prior to the lapse; and that he had communicated with G&G that the delayed payment was due to fraudulent activity in his bank account that he had previously reported.
Furthermore, Glasser and Glasser allegedly assured him that the delayed payment would not pose a problem. In response, G&G indicated that they are a “collection agent for the collection of certain court-ordered fines, fees, and costs associated with delinquent debts owed to… the courts in the City of Norfolk, Virginia. As part of this representation, accounts in judgment status are placed with our office where the complainant’s license to drive has been previously suspended.” G&G admitted that when the complainant had “contacted their office in April 2017 and indicated that he wished to pay off his court fine accounts, the Glasser agent who assisted him unfortunately misunderstood that the complainant wanted to pay off one account and, as a result, the payoff for one account was provided and received.” Glasser and Glasser apologized for the error and indicated that they had “contacted the Norfolk Court clerk and requested (and confirmed) that the license of the complainant is active and the suspension for non-payment of the second account was immediately lifted.”

Federal laws protect you. The Fair Debt Collections Practices Act (FDCPA) regulates the behavior of collection agencies by prohibiting actions such as the use of abusive or threatening language; harassment; or the use of false or misleading information to collect a debt.

Additional consumer protection laws include the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) and the Consumer Financial Protection Act (CFPA).
Can I sue G&G for harassment?
