Attorney Profile

Jason M. Rapa, Esquire is the principal and managing partner of Rapa Law Office, P.C.  Founded in 2005,  Rapa Law Office, P.C. is a small town general practice law firm with a focus on consumer protection and debt related litigation.  Since graduating with honors from Widener University School of Law in 2002, Jason has been exposed to numerous areas of the law while employed by a law firm in the Poconos and later a Lehigh Valley firm.  Despite his experience in the areas of criminal defense, personal injury, family law and estate planning, Jason found his work vindicating the rights of consumers to be the most rewarding, causing him to focus his practice on assisting those struggling with consumer protection matters and debt related issues.

In addition to the debt and consumer protection related matters, Rapa Law Office, P.C. also provides assistance to clients in personal injury, criminal defense, family law and wills and estate matters.  In these other areas of law Jason shares the duties with  his brother and partner Matthew J. Rapa, Esquire, who enjoys litigation and excels before a jury.

Priding himself on helping individuals struggling with debt and debt related issues, Jason routinely represents consumers in bankruptcies under Chapter 7 & 13 of the US Bankruptcy Code and in asserting claim under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and Fair Credit Reporting Act for consumers injured and mistreated by debt collectors, creditors and credit reporting agencies.  Jason has also assisted clients in automobile cases, Truth in Lending Act Cases and home improvement contract cases.  

Admitted to practice in all Courts of the State of Pennsylvania and the Federal Courts for the Eastern, Middle and Western Districts of Pennsylvania and the Third Circuit Court of Appeals, Jason has helped thousands of clients throughout Pennsylvania.


Besides advancing the rights of consumers in the Courtroom Jason also routinely lectures on Consumer Bankruptcy Matters and the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act at the local, state and national conferences for the Pennsylvania Bar Institute and local Bar Associations.

Jason is a board member of the Carbon County Bar Association, a member of the National Association of Consumer Advocates and the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys and is actively involved in community revitalization organizations such as the Lehighton Downtown Initiative.

 

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, the Fair Credit Reporting Act, and the Pennsylvania Unfair Trade Practices and Consumer Protection Law are three important laws protecting the rights of Pennsylvania consumers.

Rapa Law Office routinely represents individuals in a wide variety of civil litigation matters. Much of this work centers around our goal of protecting Pennsylvania consumers. The consumer protection law attorneys at Rapa Law Office have successfully represented thousands of consumers in Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, Fair Credit Reporting Act and Unfair Trade Practices Act cases recovering  millions of dollars from creditors, debt collectors and credit reporting agencies who run a afoul of the laws enacted to protect consumers . We are fierce advocates for the rights of consumers, believing  that experienced and aggressive representation of consumers is the best way to keep the bad actors in Corporate America in check.

Both Jason and Matthew are members of the National Association of Consumer Advocates and Jason is a member the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys.  Jason routinely lectures at continuing legal education seminars for fellow attorneys on the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.  In 2011 and again in 2012, Jason was recognized by Super Lawyer Magazine as a Rising Star in the field of consumer protection law. The attorneys at Rapa Law posses the knowledge, skill and industry recognition to vindicate your consumer rights.
