One concern for attorneys, especially attorney bloggers, is how much you can write about existing cases. Obviously, I cannot list my client names or violate the attorney client privilege. But, I can write about things that happen in cases.
I have a half dozen or so cases with Erica Brachfeld. I called on Friday to her office at Brachfeld and Associates. I asked for her, but alas, she was not in – again. Interestingly, she has never been in when I have called. But I spoke to a collector.
I asked the collector where my money was from the three sanctions awards I have against them. He said he did not know but would take a message. I asked when I could expect my money. He said “Good luck with collecting from us.” Really? Good luck?
Am I the only one who finds it ironic that a debt collector, or in this case, a debt collection attorney, does not pay its own bills? Ms. Brachfeld takes an aggressive approach in trying to collect money from people, whether it is owed or not, but she will not pay court ordered awards.
If you have been sued by Ms. Brachfeld or her firm, Brachfeld and Associates, or even if you have just received a letter from them about a debt, call me. Or, better yet – email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for a free consultation and 1 hour free work if you retain me.
