Todd Frankenthal has extensive experience defending collection lawsuits in South Florida. This includes lawsuits filed by
- Credit Card Lenders
- Leasing Companies
- Asset-Based Lenders
- Finance Companies
- Mortgage Lenders
In addition, having also represented lenders over many years, Todd has the enhanced perspective to achieve the best possible result for you, understanding all possible claims and defenses.
If settlement is possible Todd will guide you as to how to structure the agreement to provide the greatest benefit. If settlement is not possible he will aggressively defend the lawsuit, raising all available defenses, including those provided by the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act, Fair Credit Reporting Act, and Consumer Collections Practices Act. We also countersue the lender when it is strategically advisable.
Whether your case can be settled or not, Todd will advise you as to the exemptions to which you are entitled under Florida law. Exempt property is property that your creditors can not take from you. Some well-known examples are retirement products such as IRAs, and 401K Plans. Another well-known example is your homestead (residence), although there are several exceptions to the homestead exemption that you will need to discuss with Todd.
