Attorneys: A History of Helpfulness

Attorneys in our day are often called bottom feeders, ambulance chasers or worse. I am an attorney in private practice, and it is my mission to show you that the law is a calling filled with noble and enthusiastic people who are doing the job to help others. The law can be incredibly confusion, and it seems to change drastically day by day. Attorneys are there to help clients navigate the murky waters of legal issues and find the most appropriate solution to problems they face. So don't think of a lawyer as the bad guys. Lawyers help people, and this blog will teach you how.

Is Blocking Phone Calls All You Have Left?

If you are like most people, you have been the victim of spam phone calls—you know, those pesky telemarketers or robocalls that seem to come at the most inopportune times. And, even though you may have your phone number on the National Do Not Call Registry, you still get calls from time to time.

You may wonder if blocking phone calls is the only option you have left. After all, they simply do not seem to stop. In fact, there may be another option: to go legal.

Why Isn't Somebody Doing Something?

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has been fighting against spam phone calls for years. In fact, they have even created an initiative, known as the Do Not Call Registry, which is designed to stop telemarketers from calling people who have registered their phone numbers.

The FTC has also taken legal action against many companies that have engaged in this type of illegal activity. Still, some companies do not stop or are difficult to trace. This is why it feels like nobody is doing anything.

Can You Pursue Legal Options on Your Own?

Fortunately, you do not have to wait for the FTC to take action. You can actually pursue legal options on your own. A lawyer can help you stop spam phone calls for good.

Here's how it works. First, your lawyer will send a cease and desist letter to the company that is responsible for the calls. This will put an immediate stop to the calls. Then, your lawyer will help you file a lawsuit against the company.

The good news is that many of these companies do not have the resources to fight a lawsuit. This means that they will often settle out of court. And, when they do, you may be able to collect some compensation for your troubles.

Is a Lawsuit the Best Option to Stop Spam Phone Calls?

A lawsuit is not always the best option to stop spam phone calls. Sometimes, the company may not have the resources to pay a settlement. In other cases, the company may be located in another country, making it difficult to pursue legal action.

The only way to be certain that a lawsuit is your best option is to consult with a lawyer who understands spam phone calls and harassment laws. Set up a consultation with a professional to learn more about protecting your time and your mental health.
