Since the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) was amended to US law in 1977, consumers have been turning to attorneys for help in winning their creditor harassment lawsuits. One of the most helpful tools FDCPA attorneys can use to best assist their clients win their claim is case and lead management software.
FDCPA lead and case management software helps you get cease and desist letters out quickly.
One of the most important components of starting an FDCPA lawsuit for your client is to send out a cease and desist letter to a debt collection agency. Consumers often do not know how to do this themselves, so they’re left to endure endless harassment from collection agencies.

In eLuminate, eGenerationMarketing’s lead and case management software, you can auto-fill required fields to create a unique cease and desist letter. eLuminate allows you to send a signable PDF that includes your client’s name, address, phone number, and more. On top of your client’s information, these documents can include your firm’s address, phone number, logo, and more.

If you want your firm’s cease and desist letter edited so that it’s compatible with Adobe’s EchoSign, our Client Services team can create one for you.
Debt collection lead management software allows you to evaluate leads quickly.
Some creditor harassment cases are significantly better than others. On occasion, a consumer will try to file an FDCPA lawsuit against a collection agency that may not win. An example of this would include finding claimants who only have one minor violation, such a creditor calling them at 7:55 a.m. instead of after 8 a.m.

Maybe you find that the best cases for your firm includes claimants that have been called frequently and have been spoken to in a threatening voice.
