This practical guide, written by Daniel A. Edelman, will assist an attorney representing a debtor in a collection case. Detailed sections help the practitioner through court procedures, including handling deadlines, compliance with applicable collection law, and using affidavits, testimony, and records. Substantive defenses, such as both the statutes of frauds and limitations, are also thoroughly discussed. Other topics covered are the verification of the debt under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, the Uniform Commercial Code, and S.Ct. Rule 222 as well as compliance with the Code of Civil Procedure and S.Ct. Rule 282 for defective collection pleadings. For the creditor’s perspective on collection issues, IICLE® will soon be releasing Collection Litigation: Representing the Creditor.
