Why hire attorney John Fugate?
I have practiced law in Texas for more than 25 years and I am one of fewer than 80 lawyers in Texas who are Board Certified in Consumer and Commercial law by the Texas State Bar Board of Legal Specialization.
I will make the abusive collector pay my fees, or you owe nothing.
Consumer and Commercial Law is my specialty
I am one of fewer than 80 lawyers in Texas who are Board Certified in Consumer and Commercial law by the Texas State Bar Board of Legal Specialization. Debt collection law is included within this specialization. This means that I have passed the Texas Board of Legal Specialization’s rigorous standards to be board certified based on how many cases I have tried, my years of practice, and my percentage of cases in this area of practice, and I have passed the State Bar of Texas exam for this specialty.
More than 1,000 successful lawsuits
I have filed more than 1000 lawsuits against abusive or fraudulent debt collectors that have resulted in a judgment in favor of my client or a settlement for my client. I have represented many more people with debt collection issues where lawsuits were not needed, or with bankruptcy if other options were not available.
Nationally recognized expert
I have appeared as a collection law expert on NBC Dateline and have been interviewed by many national publications and news networks including ABC 20/20, the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, Huffington Post, ABC Evening News, and USA Today and many regional news outlets.
I have been a speaker at State Bar of Texas continuing legal education programs involving debt collection, and I have spoken at debt collection industry conferences designed to train the debt collection industry in compliance with collection laws.
Thousands of investigations
I have investigated literally thousands of collection attempts involving collection violations and have developed an expertise that can only be developed over time. I have personally handled each and every case that I have taken. This gives me an advantage in tracking down scams based on a working knowledge of common tactics and an extensive personal database that I’ve developed. I have a starting point for my cases that few can match.
