Jonathan Hoffmann Moderates American Bar Association Panel on Autodialing Under TCPA

Jonathan Hoffmann, attorney in the firm’s Birmingham office and member of the Consumer Finance Practice, recently moderated a panel discussion entitled “The Evolving Definition of an Automatic Telephone Dialing System Under the TCPA” for the American Bar Association (ABA) Section of Litigation.

The program provided attendees additional insight into how courts have approached the definition of an “automatic telephone dialing system” (ATDS)—a key component of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) in the months following the D.C. Circuit’s opinion in ACA International v. FCC. Additionally, the panel highlighted ongoing FCC actions that may impact the definition of an ATDS and other issues under the TCPA.

Jonathan focuses his legal practice on consumer and financial services compliance and litigation, handling individual and class action lawsuits under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), and the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). He represents clients in bankruptcy litigation, complex business disputes, and loan workouts, and advises clients on best practices regarding consumer credit issues. Jonathan also serves as a co-editor and a regular contributor for Balch’s Past Due blog, which offers insights and developments impacting the consumer credit industry.
