What is collection law? Is it the most important area of law that affects businesses? Despite chuckles from most attorneys and anyone else reading this description, one can make a cogent argument that this rhetorical question needs to be answered in the affirmative. This seminar will outline collection practice in general and the various issues facing collection law practitioners as well as discuss the myriad of ethical issues and entanglements that could ensnare even the most seasoned practitioner. What Rules of Professional Conduct (RPCs) apply to collection law and collection law practitioners? When does the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) apply? When is a “debt” really a debt? When is a “debt collector” really a debt collector? The definitions in the FDCPA may surprise you.
This course, presented by Jonathan Goodgold, Esq., of The Beinhaker Law Firm, LLC, who handles the firm collection practice, will review the steps necessary for operating and managing a collection practice and provide practical guidance in the navigating the ethical minefield in collection law.
