Yes, but more often then not the collection companies have violated your rights and you may not even know it. You should contact us to see if we can sue the collection company to offset some of your student loan costs. And the great part is under these conditions the collection company has to pay your legal fees.

Yes, they can, but in Georgia they have to sue you and get a judgement first. You can avoid this by calling and making payment arrangements, or trying to settle if they actually sue you.
