For more than 20 years the Tischhauser Law Group has protected consumers against the harassing and abusive methods debt collection agencies use to collect debts. You deserve respect, even when you have fallen on hard times.
Cost-effective, strategic and zealous legal advocacy in Florida for more than 20 years
You have rights, no matter how much you owe or to whom and no matter what bill collectors tell you otherwise. In our troubled economic times the Tischhauser Law Group and its attorneys will always fight to ensure that even if you've lost your job, lost your good credit score or even just lost your way in the ever more complicated financial world, you won't lose your dignity.
The Tischhauser Law Group is a consumer rights/debt-collection defense and personal injury law firm. Our focus in these areas makes us highly respected and knowledgeable attorneys for consumer rights law and personal injury in Tampa and throughout Central Florida. Because of our proven track record, many of our clients come to us as referrals from respected sources including previous clients and other lawyers as well as defense lawyers who've experienced the quality of our representation from the other side. Most amazingly, even people we sued for our clients want to retain the Tischhauser Law Group to handle their own case.
A commitment to protecting consumers and debtors
Maybe a bill collector is calling to collect a debt you owe, but cannot pay, or a creditor is calling to collect a debt you dispute or feel you don't owe. While collection agencies may have a right to collect debt, if they obey the law when they do, you have the right to hold them responsible if they subject you to abuse, disrespect, or lies. Because of laws, including the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, you may be entitled to a cash settlement and the Florida Consumer Collection Practices Act may entitle you to recover money for any actual damage collectors cause, and the court may award an additional penalty of up to $1,000.00. The abusive debt collectors can also be responsible for paying the attorney's fees, which allows you to retain an attorney to enforce your rights! More importantly, if the abusive bill collectors have broken the law they should be held responsible for their actions, just like they claim you should be responsible for the debts they collect.
Our commitment to protect you applies equally to injury cases, whether you are injured in a car accident, motorcycle wreck, slip and fall or animal attack. The insurance industry revolves around making billions of dollars collecting insurance premiums and not paying them back out in claim settlements. From the very first contact you will be dealing with professional adjusters, many trained by insurance defense lawyers, whose primary focus in life is following insurance company policies established to maximize their profit while making you believe that you are getting the best in customer service. The greatest money making event for an insurance company is handling a claim with an injured person that is not represented by an attorney. Why? Because typically the only person that has the slightest clue about the pros and cons of the claim, its value and the true financial exposure of the insurance company, is the adjuster who is your adversary! You undoubtedly would never want to play a card game where the other player gets to see all of your cards, gets to deal as crooked as he likes and makes up rules as he goes along that you have to abide by. You get to do nothing but sit at the table, without any expectation other than simply losing all of your money. Handling your injury claim, even with your own insurance company, is just the same.
If you find yourself in any legal situation, you need an honest and tough attorney who stands firmly by your side. When you reach out to us, you leave behind your worries about creditors who harass you or insurance adjusters who ignore or just frustrate you. They become our responsibility.

If another person's negligence caused you to suffer physical or psychological injury, you can open a personal injury claim. Negligence means failing to follow a basic standard of careful behavior and causing an injury to someone else.
Examples of personal injury cases include:
-Dog bites/animal attacks
-Dangerous drugs and unsafe work conditions
If someone else's negligence caused an accident that injured you, the law entitles you to compensation for your losses.

Your trusted allies
If you have been injured in an accident, don't put your trust in the hands of an insurance company. You may not know your rights or what to say when insurance company representatives contact you. If you have been injured in an auto accident, many insurance companies take advantage of victims who don't have an attorney to represent them. Your insurance company may not even inform you of all of your rights.
At the Tischhauser Law Group, we take your side against insurance companies. We know the techniques insurance companies use to deny you just compensation. We give you personalized legal guidance at every step of your case. We take the time to answer your questions, explain the law without complicated legal jargon and strive to return all communication promptly.
Protecting your claim
Every state limits the time you have to file a personal injury claim. Consult an experienced personal injury attorney in Florida as soon as possible to ensure that you file your claim before the deadline. We investigate your claim right away, to ensure that witnesses' memories remain fresh and evidence remains available.
We answer your questions about your potential recovery and give you honest and direct assessments of your case. If we believe you have a case, we work diligently to recover losses associated with the injury, including reimbursement of medical costs and lost wages.
Contact a personal injury attorney in Tampa who fights vigorously for you
In some cases, our lawyers can arrange to visit your home or hospital to ensure timely investigation and filing of your claim.
