Milwaukee Wisconsin Consumer and Class Action Violation Attorneys
At Welcenbach Law Offices, we help victims of consumer violations.
In 2017, Welcenbach Law Offices prevailed in the Wisconsin Supreme Court in a class action lawsuit they brought against Healthport Technologies. Welcenbach Law Offices sued Healthport on behalf of a personal injury client in 2013 and alleged that they had been overcharging all Wisconsin citizens to obtain their own certified medical records. The Wisconsin Supreme Court agreed and declared the charges were illegal. Healthport now faces having to refund the illegal fees plus $25,000.00 exemplary damages per violation.
We have experience in helping people who were injured due to a creditor's violation of consumer protection laws including the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act, Fair Credit Reporting Act and Wisconsin Consumer Act.
We help people with the following situations:
A debt collector or company is collecting from me and I do not own the money because I'm the wrong person.
A debt collector or company is collecting from me and I do not own the money because the debt was already settled, paid or discharged in bankruptcy.
I filed bankruptcy and after bankruptcy a company or debt collector is:
Sending collection letters on a debt I discharged.
- Sending notices related to a house debt that I discharged in bankruptcy demanding payment of money.
- Making phone calls trying to collect on debt I discharged.
- Reporting discharged debt on my credit report.
A company is illegally checking my credit report.
The only permissible purposes of checking a credit report are:
- Review of an existing account.
- In connection with an unsolicited firm offer of credit.
- As part of an application for credit.
A debt collector or company is making unwanted calls to my cell phone including robo-calls trying to collect debt.
My bank or credit union took money from a checking or savings account to pay a credit card late fee, over limit fee, or for another reason.
I'm being charged illegal or excessive fees by a bank, credit card company or governmental entity.
