Pensacola Bankruptcy Attorneys Discuss the Increase in Debt Collection Activities

Pensacola, Fla. – Within the last year and a half, a large number of debt collection efforts were suspended as a result of the pandemic, which caused a considerable decrease in lawsuits pertaining to debt collection. Martin Lewis and Steve Jurnovoy, reputable bankruptcy attorneys in Pensacola, think that this duration of leniency is likely coming to an end, as they have taken note of the recent influx of collection activities. Collection businesses and debt purchasers appear to have gone back to business as usual, filing credit card lawsuits and foreclosures.

Oftentimes, people find themselves drowning in debt, not realizing they need help until it is too late. According to Lewis and Jurnovoy, these are some indicators that a person is in debt and headed down a bumpy road: obtaining calls and letters from debt collection companies, having no other choice but to skip certain monthly payments, or consistently needing to get into more debt just to pay current bills. If one or all of these activities are describing a person’s current life situation, it is probably time to contact a professional for legal advice.

Lewis and Jurnovoy host a call-in show every Tuesday on Blab television called “Bankruptcy Hour.” On one of their recent shows, Lewis states 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.”

Though debt collection is resuming full-speed ahead across the nation, there is always a solution for those in dire situations. Lewis and Jurnovy are here to help clients find that solution! They have been practicing law for over 20 years, presently serving clients across the Panhandle in Crestview, Panama City, Pensacola, and Fort Walton Beach.
