Bankruptcy Lawyers in Fort Walton Discuss Recent Surge in Collection Activities

debt consolidation in Fort Walton Beach

Fort Walton Beach, Fla. — Over the last year and a half, many collection attempts were suspended due to the pandemic, which resulted in a considerable drop in collection lawsuits. Lewis and Jurnovoy, bankruptcy assistance attorneys in Fort Walton Beach, Florida, theorize that this period of leniency appears to be coming to an end as they have noted that collection activities have begun to increase in recent weeks. Debt buyers and collection companies seem to have returned to business as normal, filing both credit card lawsuits as well as foreclosures.

It’s not uncommon for people to be drowning in debt before realizing that they need help. Some warning signs that you might be in debt, according to Lewis and Jurnovoy, are receiving phone calls and letters from debt collection agencies, having to skip payments to credit card and mortgage companies, or constantly having to borrow more money to pay your bills. Dealing with any or all of these issues means that now is a good time to reach out for legal advice.

On a recent segment of “Bankruptcy Hour,” a live call-in show hosted by Lewis and Jurnovoy every week on Tuesday on Blab TV, Lewis stated that “You shouldn’t have to go through this alone if you're having financial problems... give us a call, let us set you up with an appointment and see what’s going on and see what we can do to try and steer you in the right direction to help you get out of debt and to move forward.”
