November 10, 2015: Newark, NJ: Manny Newburger, a named shareholder in Barron & Newburger, P.C. and recognized authority on the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, argued an important FDCPA case before the Third Circuit Court of Appeals. The case, which is known as Pressler & Pressler v.

Mr. Newburger argued that treating a lawsuit as a communication from a debt collector could lead to absurd and contradictory results under the FDCPA. The argument was covered by Law 360 and Inside ARM.
