I have been harrassed by a debt collection lawyer for some time and today I mistakenly received a legal document for a completely different client/different case which was sent to me.
I'm guessing that this violates some law and concerned that if they sent me the wrong paperwork that they probably tried to send me something and sent it to the wrong person as well. I do not want my private legal information seen by other people.
Is there anything I can do about this? (Legally)

Yes, the conduct which you;ve described on the part of this debt collector
could involve violations of the federal FCRA (Fair Credit Reporting Act)
as well as the FDCPA (Fair Debt Collection Practices Act) and you may wish to consult with a civil litigator with experience in pursuing violations under these and related consumer protection laws and who could advise you on
the particulars of your situation.
