I am a consumer attorney and was pleased with all the attention Halpern's book has gotten. However, what concerns me is that all the attention is going to the most extraordinary illustrations of unscrupulous and sometimes criminal elements of the debt collection industry. My fear is this draws attention from the inequities so common in the less extraordinary cases. Everyday in courts all across America consumers are walked all over by debt collectors. These consumers are unrepresented in a system that favors the debt collector. Of course, these consumers are often the most vulnerable among us.
