The infamous debt collection law-firm Selip & Stylianou, LLP has a very busy year in 2015.Â In what many believe was an attempt to escape its heinous reputation for abusing consumers, it changed its name from â€œCohen & Slamowitzâ€ to â€œSelip & Stylianouâ€.Â What you call this debt collection mill is off little concern to the more than 14,000 consumers it sued in New York Debt collection courts in 2015. Â Â This is up nearly 40% from the year before.Â So, while the name change may not mean much to consumers, it apparently meant a lot to the debt buyers, banks and other creditors who hired Selip & Stylianou to do its dirty work in 2015.
Selip & Stylianou represents some of the most active debt buyers including:
|Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â New Century Financial Services
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Resurgent Capital Services, L.P.,

While Selip & Stylianou, LLP is a law-firm, in reality they are more like a glorified collection agency able to use the courts as a debt collection tool.Â Once a judgment is obtained, law-firm debt collectors like Selip & Stylianou, LLP can freeze bank accounts, garnishee wages and issue subpoenas.
Law-firm debt collectors like Selip & Stylianou employ few attorneys but many debt collection agents.Â In fact, if you call them, you will not speak with an attorney, you will speak with a debt collection agent who is probably being paid a commission for any money he or she collects from you.
Selip & Stylianou, LLP and many of its debt buyer clients are notorious violators of federal debt collection laws known as the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) and are sued regularly by consumers for these violations.Â The FDCPA is a federal law that regulates the collection of consumer debts. It precludes third party debt collectors from using false, misleading, deceptive and harassing debt collection tactics.
Over the years Selip & Stylianou, LLP (when it called itself Cohen & Slamowitz) had been on the receiving end of countless FDCPA lawsuits, Attorneys General lawsuits, regulatory and governmental actions.
