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.
