Leah’s broad litigation experience includes representing constituents in the business community, from individuals to Fortune 500 companies, specifically in consumer financial services litigation. She has experience defending against claims arising under FDCPA, FCRA, and TCPA, in addition to employment defense, complex commercial litigation disputes, and intellectual property disputes.

In March, the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey granted the defendant’s motion to dismiss a claim that the defendant violated § 1692e(8) of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) when it failed to report a debt as disputed. Specifically, the court determined it could disregard the allegations in the complaint that the plaintiff had disputed the debt during a telephone call, because the defendant attached the transcript of the call to the motion to dismiss that contradicted the plaintiff’s allegations.
