Experience When It Matters.

With more than 10 years of legal experience, our law firm concentrates on Criminal Defense and Debt Collection Defense.

Criminal Defense

Being arrested and charged with a crime or being investigated by law enforcement for a crime is a frightening and frustrating event in a person’s life. Especially, when you are facing the loss of your freedom, reputation, career and relationships. Going through the criminal court system can be just as horrifying, especially when you do not know or understand its complicated procedures.

As a criminal defense attorney, Mr. Cipriano applies the invaluable skills he acquired during his years as a former prosecuting attorney handling criminal cases, ranging from misdemeanors to serious felonies. Our law firm knows how to properly and aggressively protect your interests, as well as attack evidence gathered to later be used against you.

At the Cipriano Law Firm, we strive to achieve the best possible outcome in your case, as well as providing you with personal and prompt attention on your case. Mr. Cipriano makes himself available to his clients whenever needed, ready to answer questions and keep them up to date as to how their case is proceeding.

There is no charge for an initial consultation and case evaluation.

Debt Collection Defense

If you have been served with a lawsuit from a junk debt buyer you may or may not recognize the junk debt buyer that is suing you. Junk debt buyers like Cach, LLC., Midland Funding, LLC., LVNV Funding, LLC., and Calvary SPV I, LLC. sue hundreds of Floridian consumers each and every month. You are definitely not alone. When you are being sued by a junk debt buyer, we understand that circumstances beyond your control may have caused you to default on your consumer debt with the original creditor, such as: a huge medical bill, the sudden loss of a loved one, an unexpected job layoff, or a tumultuous divorce.

A junk debt buyer purchases the consumer debt from the original creditor after the debt has been charged-off because of non-payment and attempts to collect on the debt. Junk debt buyers purchase debts for pennies on the dollar, and then attempt to collect the full face value of the debt.

Far too many times a junk debt buyer will easily obtain a default judgment against a consumer because the consumer chose to ignore the lawsuit which required the consumer to either appear at the initial appearance date (pretrial conference) or to answer the lawsuit within the prescribed period of time.

Next, a Final Default Judgment will be entered against the consumer by the Court. The consumer is considered a judgment debtor and the junk debt buyer is considered a judgment creditor. A Final Default Judgment is an order by a Judge which means that the junk debtor buyer who obtained the judgment against the consumer can collect on it until it is fully paid for you up to 20 years after it is filed with the Clerk and recorded.

Mr. Cipriano has extensive knowledge and experience defending consumers who have been sued by junk debt buyers attempting to collect on consumer debts. Mr. Cipriano represents consumers who have been sued by junk debt buyers in Hillsborough County and surrounding counties.

At the Cipriano Law Firm, we strive to achieve the best possible outcome in your case, as well as providing you with personal and prompt attention on your case. Mr. Cipriano makes himself available to his clients whenever needed, ready to answer questions and keep them up to date as to how their case is proceeding.
