More and more people are having a hard time making ends meet. They are compensating for this by borrowing relatively small amounts of money from unscrupulous lenders charging high interest rates. When the consumer defaults, these unscrupulous lenders charge exorbitant “add-on” expenses when they sue to recover. The little guy needs help. If you are an attorney who practices in the area of consumer law, you probably like to help the small consumer.
