Florida Fair Debt Collection Practices Act

Florida’s state law on debt collection mimics, and closely mirrors, the FDCPA. It provides protection from misrepresentations, harassment, third-party disclosures of the alleged debt, threats, and other abusive conduct.

Like the Federal law, Florida law provides for actual damages or statutory damages up to $1,000, as well as an award of attorneys’ fees and costs. If you believe that a collector has behaved inappropriately while attempting to collect a debt from you in Florida, our attorneys can help you to determine whether the FDCPA or Florida law provides you with a legal remedy.

To learn more about the FDPCA, go to Federal Debt Collection Practices Act.

Florida Statute Title 33, Chapter 559, Section 72, (33-559.552, et seq.)
