Fitzgerald & Campbell is a Consumer Protection Law Firm unlike any other. We provide affordable protection to consumers suffering from debt throughout California and assist them in getting... (more)

Fitzgerald Campbell is a consumer protection law firm dedicated to protecting debtors' rights. We protect consumers from abusive conduct by bill collectors, lenders and others while resolving client debts. We compel creditors to prove the debt they are attempting to collect.

It is our belief that creditors and debt buyers are unable to prove up most debts and are, therefore, not entitled to collect the money or pursue any further debt collection activity. Unfortunately, creditors, collectors, debt buyers and others continue to get away with abusive behavior because no one is willing to stand up to them and demand proof. At Fitzgerald Campbell, we say, "Do not pay it until they can prove that you owe it."

We also believe that, in order to be successful in resolving our clients' debts, we must take all debts into consideration. It is not enough to resolve only your credit card debts. Taxes, home loans, student loans, auto loans and any other type of debt must be part of the debt elimination plan. This is the best way we know to get our clients back on the road to financial stability. Sometimes the solution is filing for bankruptcy. Sometimes it means negotiating or litigating a debt settlement.

Our primary goal is to get you out of debt for the least amount of money possible and to protect you from creditors in the process. We thank you for visiting our website and truly wish you success in your efforts to get away from debt. We hope that you will take advantage of our free initial consultation and learn more about how we can help you through this difficult time.

"Greg has helped us so much with a really bad situation we were in. I can't even believe I am saying this about an attorney (no offense to attorneys but...) he is actually caring, helpful, and honest. He spent so much time listening to our circumstances and answering questions before we even retained him. I was so impressed by his knowledge and honesty, and compassion for our dire situation. He does not BS, sugar coat things, or make false promises, he is the real deal. If you are like me and look at reviews before hiring an attorney, I want you to know there is a reason why he has such great ratings on multiple review platforms, which is also why I called him in the first place. Hope this review helps someone find a great attorney when they need one!"

"I was a victim of fraud, when I received a call from a company that told me that they could help me eliminate all my debt and that they specialized in this process. I listened to this lie and because I was making a choice either pay the bills or buy food at the time the services of this company and their claims seemed legit so I trusted them to do what they promised me over the phone and was paying them a substantial amount of money every month to eliminate my debt but after several months of thinking that my debt was being take care of out of the blue I was sued by two of the companies that they were supposed to eliminate so I immediately found and hired Fitzgerald & Campbell and what a life saving move for me and my family, they not only took on my case, but they were able to get every penny this other company scammed out of me. In just a short amount of time they have already got both lawsuits demised and one of the two debts settled. They are a legit company that quickly jumped on my problem and are working hard every day in solving my debt issue, they are always in direct communication with me and letting me know each step of the way what they are doing. Thanks to Fitzgerald & Campbell for being there for me and my family."

"I would recommend Fitzgerald and Campbell to anyone who's looking for real results. They went above and beyond the call of duty to close my case. They didn't feed me a lot of legal jargon. They kept me in the loop regarding my case every step of the way. Not once did I have to chase them down to get a status update on my case. If you want a good legal team in your corner, contact Fitzgerald and Campbell."

"Extremely satisfied. Ultimately settled debt for less than a third of total, with a very reasonable payment plan with no interest. Initially, I received a prompt, friendly and informative consultation. They were upfront about legal fees, which were reasonable. Throughout the whole process, they were friendly and helpful."

WHY DO PEOPLE FILE FOR BANKRUPTCY?
Law Office Of James C. Hord Charlotte, NC Why do people file for bankruptcy? This is a question that I am asked by my friends from time to time. After all, shouldn't people pay their debts and not cause harm to their creditors? In an ideal world, this would be an acceptable standard. But, unfortunately, this is not an ideal world. Recognizing that this is a credit based economy, people do get behind on their obligations, for various reasons. Some may have had a temporary lawoff from their job; some may incur unexpected medical expenses; some may have had a cut in pay; while others may have simply miscalculated their ability to repay their debts. Whatever the reason, our person may now find the wolf knocking on his or her door demanding money which they do not have. This could be an embarrassing, or harassing situation. After all, who likes to have creditors calling demanding money which they do not have? Who likes to have a sheriff bringing a summons to their door? Who likes to have a foreclosure action filed aganst their residence? The bankruptcy laws are designed to give you relief from this oppression. One of the most important benefits of bankruptcy is the "automatic stay." This means that the minute you file for bankruptcy, creditors will not be allowed to contact you any further. This means that all phone calls, collection letters, lawsuits, foreclosure actions, etc. will have to be put "on hold.' Creditors will now have to work through the court to sort things out. Chapter 13 or Chapter 7? The two basic types of bankruptcy for individuals is Chapter 13 and Chapter 7. Chapter 13 is a reorganization of your finances; and, Chapter 7 is a liquidation. Which chapter should I file? Most people file Chapter 13 when they have property to save, or cannot pass the means test. Maybe their residence is in foreclosure, or they have certain debts which they cannot discharge (taxes, for example). They can repay these debts through Chapter 13, and not lose their property. Chapter 7, however is a liquidation. Maybe our debtor is out of work and cannot devise a repayment plan. Maybe their business has failed, and they are stuck with massive debts. Whatever the reason, Chapter 7 appears to be the best option available to meet their needs. Whether to file Chapter 13 or Chapter 7? This is best determined by consultation with a bankruptcy attorney. The attorney will review your financial situation, budget, debts, property, and recommend the best option to suit your needs. You should not try to do this on your own, since bankruptcy is very complex and there are many pitfalls to making mistakes. The Means Test This is a determination of your eligibility to file a Chapter 7 case. Basically, if you have an income above a certain threshhold, you will not be qualified to file a Chapter 7 case. You will have to file Chaptder 13, and pay your creditors some portion of your debts. Congress has decided that high income debtors should not be allowed to "stiff" their creditors, if they have some ability to repay their debts. Your attorney will discuss the means test issues with you during your consultation. Discharge This is the goal in most bankruptcy proceedings. You want to have your debts declared "null and void," and creditors permanently enjoined from contacting you. As you may be aware, when our nation was founded, there were "debtor's prisons." If you could not pay your debts, you were sent away to prison, until you paid them. This generally resulted in "life sentences," since how could you earn money to pay your debts while locked up? Congress passed the bankruptcy laws in order to alleviate this situation. They recognized that some people get in "over their heads" and need relief. Thus, the concept of "discharge" was born. This means that you are relieved of your debts, and given a "fresh start" to get on with your life. Bankruptcy has both its benefits, and detriments. Obviously, your credit is going to be damaged for a period of time. But, if you think the benefits outweigh the detriments, then you need to consult with an attorney to explore your options.
