Summary

Since starting my own law office in Milwaukee, WI, I have made it my goal to give each of my client's a tailored approach to their financial goals. I have made sure to focus my practice on the "little guy", only dealing with bankruptcy, debtor's rights, and foreclosure defenses. I pride himself on making connections with all of my clients and my office staff claims I have an "obsession" with returning client messages in 24 hours or less. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my children, reading English and Roman History and being a historical re-enactor in theater recitations from the colonial period.

13 Questions Answered

Q. I need assistance in understanding a legal document
A: Get a copy of the documents to a consumer lawyer - most of them in Wisconsin offer free consultations. They'll be happy to answer your questions.
Q. Is it legal for a credit card company to close my account?
A: Depends on the reason they're closing it. Did they explain why?
Q. What do I do If I believe my vehicle was repossessed illegally
A: You may have a case for an "illegal repossession" and be entitled to get the vehicle back -- AND return of all the money you paid on the car. Contact a local consumer lawyer that specializes in repossession cases and request a free consultation.
Q. Is it a good idea to opt out of a class action settlement notice you get in the mail?
A: You really need to talk with a lawyer about that, before making a decision. It will turn on the nature of the class and the type/strength of individual claims you have.
Q. Can a WI credit card collection agency try to collect a debt from 15 years ago? No contact on at least 10 years.
A: Most likely, no. That's because 6 years after default (assuming they don't have a judgment and you didn't make any partial payments) the debt can no longer be collected. Find a consumer lawyer and get a free consultation to better understand your rights.
Q. A hospital Bill that you get behind on, can the hospital just send it to collection agency without even notifying you.
A: That's an issue of "hot debate" in the legal community these days. I would recommend talking with a lawyer in Wisconsin that handles "consumer law" issues or debt collection issues. I'm sure they'd be happy to take a look at the collection letter with you. Depending on what the letter says, or how it's detailed, it may be a violation of a federal law for them to charge the interest that way.
Q. What funds are exempt from garnishment. unsecure credit card companies loans?
A: Sounds like you need to utilize something called "chapter 128" that's available to individuals in Wisconsin. You do need to be employed to file; so I"m not sure if you have any employment income in addition to your disability. Here's an article about how a Chapter 128 works: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/live-in-wisconsin-and-in-debt-chapter-128-is-your_us_58f4fcb7e4b015669722516d
Q. Can a credit card debt collector freeze my bank account if it only contains disability, pension and IRA deposites?
A: You'd need to offer a few more details - are you talking about the funds in your checking account? Regardless of the source, you have a balance of $5,000 (based on the state statutes) that's protected from garnishment.
Q. Can Aurora Health Care automatically send bills for deceased patient to collection agency? It's their new policy.
A: Are they sending the bill to you? Sounds like you need to locate a Wisconsin consumer law lawyer to review the letter for you. They shouldn't charge you anything to review the letter, explain your rights, and give you some advice.
