Consumer Attorneys Fighting for Maryland Residents

We are not afraid to take on banks, mortgage servicers, debt collectors, car dealers and credit bureaus. We are consumer attorneys that Maryland residents can turn to when their rights are violated.

LEGAL REPUTATION:

  • Peter Holland’s articles were cited in court decisions from the United States Supreme Court and the Maryland Court of Appeals.
  • National news outlets such as the New York Times and NPR — plus local outlets such as the Baltimore Sun — call on us for insight and comments.
  • We have taught consumer law and run a Consumer Protection Clinic at the University of Maryland law school.
  • We have published leading articles on consumer law in academic law journals.
  • We lecture on consumer law and trial skills to lawyers and consumer advocates around the country.

EXPERIENCE TO FIGHT AGAINST:

  • Debt collectors who sue beyond the Maryland statute of limitations or treat you unfairly.
  • Banks that don’t credit all of your payments.
  • Mortgage companies that fail to comply with the terms of your loan modification.
  • Car dealers that lie to you about the vehicle or its financing.
  • TransUnion, Experian, or Equifax if refuse to fix errors on your credit reports.
  • Credit card companies that allow identity theft to occur.

EMPATHY TO UNDERSTAND THAT:

  • You can’t sleep at night because you are worried the bank will repossess your car.
  • You can’t eat because a debt collector calls during breakfast, lunch and dinner.
  • You are so embarrassed and ashamed about your credit report that you can’t even talk about it.
  • You are scared of getting garnished for a debt you do not even recognize.
  • Your security clearance is in jeopardy because a finance company misapplied your payments.
  • You live in fear of becoming homeless because someone threatens to foreclose on your house.
