Mr. Donald Edward Petersen proudly represents consumers and small businesses in lawsuits against companies that place calls that violate the Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 (“TCPA”). “Calls” consist not only of voice communications but also include SMS text messages and junk faxes.
Many of Mr. Petersen’s clients incurred consumer debts and are being relentlessly pursued by debt collectors who are calling their cell phones. Many of his clients were being hounded by creditors or debt collectors who about accounts that were never their account and, often, the client did not even know the person who allegedly owed the debt.
Some of these clients were probably victims of identity theft, many more were probably mistakenly targeted by sloppy use of “skip trace” data bases. Debt collectors who violate the TCPA or even the FDCPA are not excused from violating the law merely because the consumer may owe the debt — these debt collectors risk substantial judgments against them if they violate the TCPA.
Mr. Petersen has extensive experience in representing consumers against debt collectors who violate the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (“FDCPA”) in both individual and class action lawsuits.
Mr. Petersen also has extensive experience in representing people who discharged their debts in bankruptcy but continue to receive telephone calls in violation of the TCPA and the discharge injunction issued by the Bankruptcy Court.
Mr. Petersen has represented people in TCPA lawsuits for over a decade. The TCPA protects any phone subscriber and/or regular user of the phone so it the calls do not have to concern a consumer debt.
Mr. Petersen will represent small businesses against callers who violate the TCPA but does NOT defend any person or company who makes such calls or any other cases where businesses need advice concerning the TCPA or any other laws which may be adverse to consumers.
