“Use the law to STOP harassing debt collection activities. Know your rights.”

Atty. Keren Gesund

Did you know the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (“FDCPA”) was enacted because congress found “abundant evidence of the use of abusive, deceptive, and unfair debt collection practices by many debt collectors,” and wanted to institute an act to help disadvantaged consumers? 15 USC 1692. There are rules and regulations that every debt collection agency must follow under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. We can help you use the law to put an end to harassing debt collection practices and learn your rights as a consumer under the “FDCPA”…often at no charge to you.

Succession (also known as “probate” in many states) is the legal process necessary to transfer assets from your estate to your heirs or legatees. A succession should occur regardless of whether you have a will. Whether your family completes a small succession or a regular succession will depend on the value of your estate. This succession process usually occurs during a time of distress when family and friends are still dealing with the loss of their loved one. Working with a compassionate professional can help move the process along quickly and calmly.

  • "I've had a few attorneys In my lifetime, however never one like Keren Gesund. I found her via the internet, and when I placed the call I was expecting a secretary, but Keren personally answered the phone and has been the only one Ive spoken with. I was being harassed by a collection agency and paying money to them for quite some time. Keren ended the harassment, and much to my surprise got a settlement out of the case as well. She was very compassionate and understood my goals regarding the case, but more importantly she stayed in constant communication with me during the whole process. Keren is a very humble person; She treated me as an equal, not just another client, and for that she is a rare heaven sent."
