|Additional Bio Details||Marshall Meyers is a founding partner of Weisberg & Meyers, LLC and the Firm's managing partner.|
Mr. Meyers has devoted his entire professional career to the practice of consumer rights litigation and has represented thousands of consumers throughout Arizona and the nation. Mr. Meyers has successfully argued before the Arizona Supreme Court and Arizona appellate courts, as well as United States District courts throughout the nation. Mr. Meyers has also prevailed in numerous trials and arbitrations in the State of Arizona and because of this extensive experience and expertise, numerous Arizona media outlets have interviewed Mr. Meyers on consumer protection issues including Phoenix television Channel 5, Phoenix television Channel 12, KTAR radio, and the Today Show.
Although Mr. Meyers has spent his career seeking redress for consumers whose basic rights have been violated by "Big Business," and aggressively pursuing companies violating consumer protection laws, Mr. Meyers believes voluntary compliance with statutes enacted to protect consumers is a more positive consumer experience than compliance forced through consumer rights litigation. With that ideal in mind, Mr. Meyers now offers "Pro Consumer" FDCPA Compliance consulting to debt collection companies demonstrating a genuine interest in complying with the Fair Debt Collection Laws the Firm enforces. However, unlike typical compliance consulting, which focuses on how best to collect without breaking fair debt laws, Mr. Meyers' consulting services advise on how best to comply with FDCPA regulations while still collecting. This consumer-concentric approach analyzes existing collection methods from a consumer debtor's perspective, thereby offering the opportunity to identify and eradicate the very practices prompting aggrieved consumers to contact consumer protection firms like Weisberg and Meyers. Interested companies may contact Mr. Meyers for more information, but should be advised applications for services will not be considered if the Firm is currently engaged in litigation against the applying company.
