Have you been sued by Portfolio Recovery Associates?

Have you been sued by Portfolio Recovery Associates and need help to either defend the lawsuit or settle the debt? If so, contact the attorneys at Tayne Law Group today for a free consultation and to learn more about how we can help.

Who are they?

Portfolio Recovery Associates (“PRA”) is a collections agency and high-volume debt-buyer. As a result of the large quantity of collection accounts it manages, consumer complaints about this organization are abundant. In fact, according to the Public Access to Court Electronic Records (PACER), PRA was sued over 700 times for harassing consumers under the FDCPA in 2011 alone.

Are they legitimate?

Portfolio Recovery Associates routinely files lawsuits to collect on the debts it has purchased. Although the original creditor may no longer be involved in the collections process, ignoring collection efforts by PRA may ultimately result in a judgment being entered (which can in turn lead to things like wage garnishment, seizure of bank accounts and placement of liens on property).

If PRA is attempting to collect a debt from you, contact Tayne Law Group today. We will fight to protect your rights and work to obtain a fair settlement for you so you can protect your credit and save money.

What People Have to Say

I just wanted to thank your entire staff at The Law Offices of Leslie H. Tayne, for helping me get out of debt. If it wasn’t for your firm, I would have never been able to resolve my $13k worth of debt in less than 3 years. Your staff did a great job, I was finally able to buy myself a brand new car without using a cosigner. I can’t tell you again how happy I am. I would recommend your services to anyone.
