Consumer Protection

Debt collection lawsuit filings have surged in San Diego Superior Court in recent years. Specialized collection agencies called “debt buyers” now purchase defaulted credit card debt in bulk for pennies on the dollar and then sue for the full amount. If you have ever held a credit card,  your chances of one day getting sued for it by a debt collector are much higher than you think. The Jake A. Walton Law Firm also assists San Diego County residents with issues related to debt collection harassment, identity theft, student loans, medical bills, default judgments and bankruptcy.

Merchant Cash Advance

Merchant Cash Advance is probably one of the most predatory forms of lending in the country today. And because the industry only affects small businesses, protections from unfair practices which typically benefit consumers greatly are non-existent. If you are a California small business owner who is facing issues related to a merchant cash advance loan, feel free to contact The Jake A. Walton Law Firm – we are happy to speak with you.
