Mobilization for Justice helps consumers address debt problems and avoid financial scams.

Mobilization for Justice provides advice, counsel, and representation to low-income individuals on a range of consumer issues, including credit card debt, medical debt, identity theft, student loans, bail bonds, and financial scams.  We also bring individual lawsuits and class actions under consumer protection laws on behalf of low-income New Yorkers.

Mobilization for Justice also engages in efforts to reform laws and regulations that affect consumers and student loan borrowers in New York. Examples of past reforms include enactment of laws and rules pertaining to protecting exempt money in bank accounts, process servicers, debt collection practices by debt collectors, and court rules regarding entry of default judgments in collection actions in New York courts.
