Welcome to Hyde & Swigart – Your Consumer Protection Attorneys

Hyde & Swigart is a law firm concentrating its efforts in the area of consumer law.  This includes the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, 15 U.S.C. §§ 1692 et seq. (“FDCPA”), and California’s Rosenthal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, California Civil Code §§ 1788-1788.32 (“Rosenthal Act”).  The lawyers at Hyde & Swigart are specially trained in Consumer Protection, Consumer Defense, and other consumer matters.  The goal of Hyde & Swigart is to protect consumers against unfair, deceptive, and abusive debt collection practices.  Hyde & Swigart also wants to ensure all consumers are being treated fairly if they are sued for credit card debt and loans.  Hyde & Swigart is a California based consumer rights law firm dedicated to the protection of consumers against abusive and illegal collection practices by debt collectors.  If you have been subjected to collection harassment, calls to the workplace, or other abuse, we are have a solution for you.  Hyde & Swigart is not a bankruptcy firm.  We sue abusive debt collectors and protect consumers who are being sued for their credit card debt.

Creditors, debt collectors, those who subsequently purchase your accounts (also known as “debt buyers”), and attorneys, who violate the FDCPA and Rosenthal Act, are subject to paying damages, statutory penalties, as well as your attorneys fees and costs.  Unsolicited marketing messages to your cellular telephone is also illegal, under the TCPA.  If you discover you are being recorded without your consent, we may be able to take action for that activity as well.  If your credit report is inaccurate, we can assist you there as well.  If you feel you have been abused, deceived, harassed, or treated unfairly, you may need a lawyer.  If you have been sued for a credit card debt, you should contact us immediately.  Call us today for a free in office or telephone evaluation, or use one of the evaluation forms on this site.
