Description: The Law Offices of Marc R. Michaud will partner with the Community Center of St. Bernard to offer a free seminar focusing on all areas of Consumer Law, including Wrongful Foreclosure, Unfair Credit Reporting and Identity Theft, Unfair and Abusive Debt Collection, as well as general Unfair Trade Practices.
The guest speaker will be Attorney Marc R. Michaud, who has extensive experience working with and against multi national banks and corporations, mortgage lenders and servicers, debt collection agencies and credit reporting bureaus. Since opening his solo law practice, Mr. Michaud recovered over a million dollars for individual clients in cases of identity theft, wrongful foreclosure and unfair and deceptive acts and practices. According to Attorney Michaud, “Since the beginning of what we now call the 'Great Recession,' unscrupulous banks and other lenders have joined their debt collector brethren and have become even more bold in the tactics they employ to squeeze their customers and non-customers alike. And it's only getting worse. It's important for individual consumers to know their rights, and to know how to fight back when necessary."
Attorney Michaud's presentation will include an overview of the techniques certain banks and collectors use to circumvent established consumer law in order to maximize profit and shareholder value at the individual consumer's expense. Participants will learn what their rights are and how to respond when faced with questionable collection practices. Importantly, Mr. Michaud can and will tailor the seminar to the participants' needs and concerns.
The Free Consumer Law seminar on April 2nd is open to the public and no reservations are needed. For more information, please call the Law Offices of Marc R. Michaud at 504.267.1657 or go to marcmichaudlaw.com .
