Why You Should Attend
With mortgage loans being the “gold standard” for actual damages in FCRA cases, a consumer’s claims are greatly enhanced by mining all resellers’ liabilities for your consumer clients. Paul Mengedoth will discuss the overlay of additional liabilities involving claims against a “reseller” under the FCRA, common reseller defenses asserted in an FCRA case and practical pre- and post-litigation tips unique to reseller cases.
In this webinar you will learn how to effectively take 30b 5&6 depositions of furnishers and credit reporting agencies and will assist you in completing various other aspects of paper discovery.
The second webinar will cover the overlap of FCRA and Chapter 7 (liquidation) bankruptcy. Mr. Krumbein will be discussing very briefly how Chapter 7 works (again familiarity with bankruptcy is helpful but not required), and then go into the substantive law including the White/Acosta/Hernandez settlement. Emphasis will be on e[b] claims and the advisability of doing a dispute under i/s-2[b].
This Webinar will focus on effective strategies for noticing and taking depositions in FCRA cases. When should depositions be noticed? Where and how should they be noticed? How should they be recorded? What should be the order of witnesses? What are the purposes of the depositions that the plaintiff seeks? What happens when the witness is unprepared or uncooperative? How should you deal with an obstructionist defense attorney? How should you mange deposition exhibits? Are you effectively taking a trial deposition?
The webinar will focus on businesses that hold themselves out to consumers as credit repair organizations, a consumer’s rights under the Act, and available remedies under the Act when an organization fails to meet its requirements.
The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) is one of the most consumer-friendly statutes out there. And, with about one in seven consumers in the U.S. currently subject to collection by third party debt collectors, the potential harvest of FDCPA claims is plentiful. Learn the basics of the FDCPA so that you can spot potential claims and help consumers.
