Credit Report Errors And Inquiries
Many people work for years to improve their credit scores, preparing for important life milestones such as buying a house. When a credit report contains inaccurate information, the results can be devastating to the consumer.
Many, perhaps all, consumers expect that the personal information the credit reporting agencies compile about them will be kept safe and only disseminated for permissible purposes. Many, perhaps all, consumers would be surprised and disappointed that this is often not the case.
At our law firm, we help clients who have discovered errors on their credit reports, and those clients who believe that their credit reports have been accessed illegally.
Free consultation: To talk to one of our lawyers in a no-cost consultation over the phone or in our office, please call to schedule an appointment.
Is There Inaccurate Information In Your Credit Report?
If your credit report contains inaccurate information, the credit reporting agency and/or the person who supplied the inaccurate information (the “furnisher”) is required to correct the information. If they fail to do so, they may be liable to you for damages.
We can help you dispute inaccurate or obsolete information in your credit report. The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) and other laws protect consumers whose information is inaccurately represented on a credit report.
Illegal Credit Report Inquiries
If you have requested a copy of your credit report, and you noticed that an unknown company is listed on the report as accessing your information, you may have legal recourse.
Accessing a credit report without permissible purpose is illegal. If you think that your credit report has been illegally accessed, you may be entitled to compensation.
We can assert your rights under the FCRA. You may be entitled to compensation. We can explain your specific options once we evaluate your situation.

Free consultation: Are you the victim of wrongful repossession? It costs nothing to talk to one of our consumer protection attorneys. Please call to schedule a consultation at our office or over the phone.
When Repo Agents Break The Law
Repossession agents are hired by financial institutions and debt collection agencies to take back property from individuals who are in debt and struggling. However, in doing so, they must abide by state and federal laws. Unfortunately, repo agents do not always know their bounds. Unfortunately, some repo agents know their bounds but cross them anyway. And they often violate the law and your rights in the process.
Here are some examples of repossession activity that may be illegal:
A repo agent attempts to repossess (or successfully repossesses) without a present right to possession of the vehicle or other property demanded
A repo agent engages you or others in physical violence
A repo agent enters your home or apartment without your permission
A repo agent refuses to leave your property, including your yard or driveway, after you instruct him or her to leave
A repo agent tells you that you will go to jail if you do not give him or her the vehicle or property demanded
A police officer provides assistance to the repo agent
A repo agent does anything that creates an unreasonable risk of violence or disturbance of peace and good order (a “breach of peace”)
If any of these actions have happened to you, you should immediately contact our law office. You may be entitled to monetary compensation for unlawful repossession or breach of peace. We can explain how.

Texas Debt Settlement Scam Lawyers
Are you the victim of a debt settlement scam?
Debt settlement companies advertise quick solutions to debt, like settling your debt for a low cost. They advertise through direct mail or phone calls, and on television, radio, billboards, Facebook, and other social media sites. Their services are often not as advertised. If they advertise to you directly, they also may have violated your privacy rights in discovering that you are having problems with debt.
At our firm, we enforce the laws that protect consumers against debt relief service providers who break those laws. If you wish to speak to one of our consumer protection attorneys, do not hesitate to contact our law firm.
Free consultation: Please call to schedule a no-cost consultation at our law office or over the phone.
Debt Settlement Scams: How We Can Help
We are familiar with the state and federal laws that protect consumers against unlawful acts by debt settlement companies. Debt relief services are high risk to the consumer and should not be engaged without consulting a lawyer. If you have taken the plunge and have been cheated, it is even more important to talk to a lawyer.

At our law firm, we represent clients who have been wrongfully targeted or harmed by student loan relief scams. We serve Texas and sometimes beyond.
Free consultation: Call us to schedule a no-cost consultation at our office or over the phone.
The Truth About Student Loan Elimination Scams
Debt relief service providers target students and graduates because these individuals are often dealing with high amounts of debt and feel helpless, which makes them vulnerable. Companies offering relief may use deceptive marketing tactics to get victims to pay money upfront for services that are not what they seem to be. Some of the tactics they use may include:
Claiming that they are affiliated with a university or the government
Claiming that they can get you a better deal than they can actually get you
Claiming that they do not charge fees when, in fact, they do
The good news is that there are numerous state and federal laws that protect consumers against abuses in the debt relief services area. As consumer protection attorneys, we can enforce those laws and hold the debt relief scammers accountable.
Remember: Not all debt relief service providers are out to scam consumers, and in some cases they may actually do you some good. But before you take a chance, make sure you do your research. If you believe you have been scammed or might be scammed, talk to one of our lawyers.
