Types of Consumer Law Services

Financial Credit & Debt Related Issues

A common need is fending off collection firms/agencies. There are federal laws governing acceptable collection practices, and many collection agencies use illegal tactics. Having a lawyer intervene can change the tone of collection agencies, and sometimes make it easier to reach a fair settlement or payment plan.

Some consumers who have attempted alternative methods to manage debt have signed contracts with a scam debt consolidation business. These scam operations end up doing more harm to your credit and financial situation. Legal action is typically the only way to get control of this situation.

In some instances our clients find there are discrepancies on their credit report which need to be removed or amended. We can work with you to affect having a correct and proper credit report.

Real Estate & Contractor Related Issues

Included in consumer assistance, and perhaps overlapping with our construction law services, is representation for homeowners relating to problems with new home purchases, remodeling or real estate contracts. Purchasing, building, or remodeling a house involves many legal issues. Most real estate transactions occur without incident, however, at times preventive and proactive legal assistance is needed. From the review of real estate contracts and representation at closing to settling disputes with builders and contractors, we can protect your interests.


The friendly people at Merbaum & Becker are available weekdays from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. EST. To arrange for a consultation simply call 678-393-8232 or contact us online.
