In July 2009, New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo sued Stephen Einstein & Associates for unlawful debt collection practices. The case involved more than 35 firms that had improperly obtained close to 100,000 default judgments against New York consumers. High-volume debt collection firms, including Stephen Einstein & Associates, had used a company called American Legal Process (ALP) to inform consumers about the debt-related lawsuits brought against them. ALP failed to serve these consumers with legal papers, leaving many of them entirely in the dark without an opportunity to defend themselves.
