MEET CATHERINE JONES
I am a consumer lawyer with over 10 years of legal experience. I am familiar
with the numerous methods debt collectors and creditors use to collect
debts as well as the options that are available to my clients to protect
them from creditor abuses and the burdens of debilitating debt. I work
with my clients to help them recognize when their consumer rights are
being violated and what to do when those rights are being violated. I
also make sure my clients understand that they can hire an attorney to
help protect their rights without having to pay attorney fees up front.
I practice consumer law because I care about helping people regain control
over their financial future and their self-confidence. We've all know
someone who has been traumatized by debt collection calls and mortgage
servicing abuses. We have the tools and we as consumers have a duty to
use them to fight back. Collectively, we can protect our children and
our grandchildren from abusive consumer practices by making it unprofitable
for creditors and debt collectors to violate consumer laws.
I have seen first-hand the damage caused by financial hardship. I filed
for personal bankruptcy protection in 2009, after my first business start-up
attempt failed. I was humiliated and scared. I felt I had nowhere to turn.
I could not sleep, eat, or enjoy life. I didn’t answer phone calls,
open mail, or answer the door for fear I would have to again admit my
failure to another unsympathetic debt collector. I know that when you
feel that your financial future is up in the air, you want to know the
truth about your options and you want to know you can trust the person
who is going to help you through your financial crisis. Do not hesitate
to place your trust in our hands, as we have the experience and compassion
to help you achieve a just result.
