NYLAG demanda a cobradores de deudas ilegales
Dupres v. Houslanger & Associates
For years, the law firm Houslanger & Associates has collected debts unfairly and unlawfully, taking New Yorkers’ wages and freezing their bank accounts. Jenifer Dupres, William Soto, Domingo Tolentino, and Luis Viruet were four of these people. They were going about their lives when they suddenly got papers in the mail from Houslanger—a law firm they had never heard of—supposedly collecting on judgments Houslanger said were entered against them a decade earlier. But Ms. Dupres, Mr. Soto, Mr. Tolentino, and Mr. Viruet knew nothing about these judgments, had never gotten served with court papers in those cases, and had never heard of the companies or supposed debts those cases were about. In collecting against these people, Houslanger broke the law in many different ways.
NYLAG brought this lawsuit, Dupres v. Houslanger & Associates, PLLC et al., to help Ms. Dupres, Mr. Soto, Mr. Tolentino, Mr. Viruet, and thousands of other New York City consumers get the protection they need from this unlawful debt collection.
