Holland Law Firm

The Holland Law Firm is here to level the playing field and protect consumers against the abusive or deceptive practices of banks, debt collectors, credit bureaus, mortgage servicers and finance companies.  Maybe you got sued by a debt collector, or your car was repossessed, or you discovered errors on your credit report, or you are being hounded to pay a debt that you do not owe.  If so, we may be able to help.  Peter Holland and Emanwel Turnbull are experienced consumer rights lawyers dedicated to protecting the rights of consumers exclusively.  The banks have plenty of lawyers to represent them.  We are lawyers who have chosen to represent ordinary people who have been cheated, lied to or mistreated by powerful corporations.  If this sounds like you, feel free to contact us for a consultation.

Practice Areas

Automobile Repossession

Maryland has strict repossession laws in place meant to protect those who lease or own automobiles. We have extensive experience suing automobile finance companies who fail to comply with these laws as well as defending repossession deficiency claims.

Identity Theft

Identity theft impacts over 10 percent of people over the age of 16. Hundreds of companies have your personal information. If you think your debt, charges, or financial activity is a result of your identity being stolen, we can help.

Debt Collection Harassment

Some debt collectors attempt to collect in abusive (and illegal) ways. This includes making false threats, calling at very early or late hours, and more. A debt collection harassment attorney provides protection from illegal practices.

Credit Reporting Errors

Credit reporting errors can cause many problems: higher interest rates, wrongful lawsuits, employment issues, and more. The Fair Credit Reporting Act sets forth consumers’ rights and remedies, and we defend those whose rights have not been respected.

Maryland Consumer Protection Act

The Maryland Consumer Protection Act is designed to protect you from unfair and deceptive trade practices. Consumer protection law applies broadly to everything from houses to cars to debt collection.

Debt Collection Defense

Consumer protection lawyers are often well suited to counsel someone who has been sued for a debt. We defend people in debt collection lawsuits because we believe that consumers deserve the right to experienced counsel and zealous advocacy— no matter who's going up against them.
