Consumer Attorney Greg Artim

If you are facing a Consumer Law issue in Pennsylvania, whether it’s being sued on a Credit Card debt collection case, being harassed by a debt collector or purchasing a defective vehicle, you have found the right website and the right Law Firm to assist you with your personal legal matter. (My office can assist with legal claims in most of PA, from Erie to Pittsburgh to Philadelphia).

The concentration of my law practice is focused on the defense of Credit Card Collection Lawsuits and the defense of Collection Agency Lawsuits across Pennsylvania. I take pride in my record of success in these matters, having defended thousands of these cases over the course of the last few years. We win nearly every collection agency lawsuit that we handle.

My firm takes on the biggest names in the Credit Card and Collection industry, including Apothaker Scian, Atlantic Credit, CACH, Capital One, FIA Card Services, Weinberg & Associates, LVNV, Main Street Acquisitions, Midland Credit Management, National Collegiate Student Loan Trust, Portfolio Recovery, Unifund, Worldwide Asset and others. I beat these agencies on a regular basis and would like to put my experience to work for you in your time of need.

If you retain my services, I will investigate your matter to determine the best course of action to ensure that your legal rights are protected. I don’t want you to pay a dime to these agencies if you don’t have to, but it’s also very important to make sure that the claim can be handled in the most cost efficient way.  In most instances, defending the lawsuit is the proper course of action, though there are certainly times when a negotiated settlement is the way to go.  Let’s discuss your case and figure out how we can resolve it at the lowest expense and in the quickest fashion.  

In that regard, I have set up a Credit Card Legal Center on this website. In contains a lot of useful information on Credit Card cases, collection agencies and junk debt buyers, so I encourage you to browse through it and get answers to your questions.

We also prosecute claims against debt collectors who violate collections laws, whether its contacting neighbors, friends and family, phone harassment, threatening wage garnishment, trying to collect monies that are not due, credit reporting errors or committing any other illegal action. See our FDCPA page for details.  If we pursue an FDCPA claim for you, there are no out of pocket costs or legal fees.  The debt collector will pay our fee any time it violates your rights.  

I came across Mr Artim’s website while panicking about a civil lawsuit by not 1 but 2 debt collection companies against me. Figured a phone call couldn’t hurt his website is very informative and explains different issues very well. Upon calling was calmed by Mr. Artim as he explained everything to me on how things work. I live 70 miles away he said no problem that he would handle my case. And handle it he did, winning both cases in the same day! Collections were removed from my credit reports and my score jumped up from poor to fair! If you need an attorney for these type of matters call him you will be glad you did.  –  Keith

Choosing an Attorney

I know that the thought of hiring of an Attorney can be a daunting task for someone who has never consulted an attorney before. You will find within minutes that I am easy to speak to and that I will answer all of your questions in an honest and forthright manner. I will let you know if I believe that I can help you, and just as important, I will let you know if I believe that I cannot help you.  We do not represent people whom we believe we cannot help.  I can be reached at 412-823-8003 or 1-888-536-6644 to answer any consumer law legal questions that you may have.  The key to handling any debt collection issue is to hire the right attorney.  Please don’t make the mistake of trying to handle the claim by yourself and please don’t hire the local family attorney.  You need someone with experience in these types of cases.  So often when I’m in court I see an inexperienced attorney making mistake after mistake on debt collection cases and his client ends up paying much more than he should have.  We’re all about cost efficiency on these matters.  Again, please call for a free consultation on any credit card or collection agency case.   

When a bank attempted to obtain a judgment against me for a defaulted private student loan, Greg was the ONLY lawyer who was even willing to continue speaking with me after I uttered the phrase “student loan.” Not only did Greg successfully get the case dismissed in a few months, but I even received cash back in the form of a settlement. Greg is a very competent, knowledgeable professional. He spent a great deal of time on the phone with me during the initial consultation, ensuring that I understood the process, possible timeframe, and potential outcomes. After taking my case, he was very prompt in responding to my questions and concerns over the phone and via email. I am SO glad I found Greg. Should you find yourself in a similar situation, I highly recommend him. – Anonymous

Other Practice Areas

The other aspect of my practice includes Motor Vehicle law, including Personal Injury, Auto Accidents, Lemon Law and Breach of Warranty issues. I’ve handled hundreds of vehicle cases, including Auto Accidents and defective vehicle (Lemon Law) cases. We can pursue most new vehicle claims under the Pennsylvania Lemon Law or the New Motor Vehicle Damage Act.  Most used vehicle claims can be pursued under the Magnusson Moss Warranty Act.  (Please note that we do not accept cases on vehicles that are more than 5 years old, and we only accept certain used vehicle cases in Southwestern Pennsylvania).  In my 15 years of experience, I’ve seen just about every type of vehicle case that there is, so your claim will be handled by an Attorney who has experienced almost every imaginable scenario.

Harassed by a Debt Collector?

If you’ve been threatened with wage garnishment, harassed, abused or treated unfairly by a Debt Collector, we can help.  If they’ve contacted family, friends, neighbors or employers about your debt, we can help. Remember, there are no out of pocket costs or fees to pursue any claims against a debt collector.

Attorney Fees

Credit Card and Collection Agency lawsuit defense are usually handled on a flat fee basis. This gives the client cost certainty in a time of financial despair. You pay me one fee to handle the lawsuit, from the filing of objections to my attendance at an Arbitration hearing, if one is necessary.

If you hire me to represent you in a new vehicle case, YOU WILL NOT HAVE TO PAY ME A RETAINER, PERIOD. That is because my fees will come from the responsible party, typically the manufacturer of your motor vehicle. If it’s a personal injury case, my fees are a percentage of the recovery. If it’s a Lemon Law or Warranty case, my fees are paid by the manufacturer. Either way, there will not be a fee charged to you unless we prevail in obtaining compensation for you. In addition, I typically advance all costs of litigation, so that you do not have any out-of-pocket expenses on any vehicle case that I handle for you. That is my pledge to you.

Other types of cases may be handled on a contingency fee, a flat fee or at an hourly rate. Please contact my office to discuss your specific legal issue.

Driving a Lemon?

If we pursue a claim under the PA Lemon Law or any Breach of Warranty Claim under Federal or State laws including the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act, there are no out of pockets fees to you.
