Unifund CCR Partners
Facing a debt lawsuit from Unifund CCR?
Unifund CCR Partners, also commonly known as Unifund CCR, LLC, is a debt
collection law firm located in Cincinnati, Ohio and handling cases in

for the purpose of recovering payment through collection or litigation.
Unifund CCR has established itself as being among the largest debt buyers
and debt collectors in the United States, and debtors in New York City
often find themselves at the receiving end of collection actions on the
part of this organization.
Unifund CCR LLC v. EQ Bronx Civil Court
One recent case in which the attorneys of Lebedin Kofman LLP prevailed
against Unifund CCR was concluded on November 2, 2013. Arthur Lebedin
represented a client who had been hit with a default judgment for an amount
in excess of $19,000. The client was unable to access his funds, since
the default judgment had resulted in his accounts being frozen. Fortunately,
Mr. Lebedin succeeded in getting the judgment vacated by working with
the plaintiff's attorneys from Mullooly, Jeffrey Rooney & Flynn.
This favorable resolution to the case hinged on the fact that we were
able to demonstrate that our client had been wrongly sued in the Bronx
despite being a resident of the state of Florida.
In 2012, Unifund CCR Partners lost a federal lawsuit filed under the Fair
Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA). The plaintiff alleged that Unifund
CCR had failed to verify a debt after sending an initial collection letter,
in addition to referring the debt to credit reporting agencies without
also mentioning that the plaintiff had disputed the debt. To learn more
