Protecting the Rights of Debtors in Wilmington

In the past, banks often had the upper hand in disputes with debtors. In recent years, this has been changing. North Carolina and the federal government have recently won victories for debtors, allowing debtors to recover money from banks that has been unfairly charged to them.

This area of our practice began as a hobby for our founding attorney, James W. Lea. He wanted to use his legal experience to help friends who were being taken advantage of by banks. This hobby has become a passion project and a vital part of our practice, and we handle a wide range of debtor-creditor actions and cases involving:

  • Foreclosures
  • Modifications
  • Predatory lending
  • Unfair or deceptive practices
  • Equal Credit Opportunity Act issues
