Cohen & Slamowitz, LLP
Fight Harassment with a New York Debt Relief Attorney
Cohen & Slamowitz, LLP describes itself as a "partnership of professional
corporations," founded in 2003 and following as a successor to a
previously existing corporation known as Upton, Cohen & Slamowitz,
which itself was founded in 1991. Located on Long Island in Woodbury,
Cohen & Slamowitz, LLP is a debt collection law firm which handles
cases involving unpaid accounts and bad debts, representing creditors
and collection agencies in legal action to enforce payment from consumer
debtors in New York and elsewhere.
Please note that has recently changed their name to Selip & Stylianou.
If you are being sued for bad debt by Cohen & Slamowitz, LLP, you should
realize that you may have grounds for legal action to fight back. The
bottom line is that this debt collection law firm has a less than perfect
reputation, based on various types of debt collector abuse, harassment
and frivolous collection law suits.
For example, in one case they were sued in federal court under the Fair
Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) for the use of improper validation
notices, failing to warn about tax consequences of a discount, and making
false threats to sue the debtor. Another federal lawsuit against Cohen
& Slamowitz, LLP also involved allegations of FDCPA violations, this
time including harassing and abusive phone calls and unlawful and deceptive
attempts to seize the debtor's income from a pension and Social Security.
