Consumers Beware!

Retain a Trial Attorney Experienced in Fair Credit Reporting Act litigation.

    “It’s a hard fight to win justice for regular people. They have to win against the boundless money, the infinite power of the American Corporation.” Gerry Spence, The Making of a Country Lawyer (St. Martin’s Press 1996).

If a consumer has a Fair Credit Reporting Act claim, it is important to retain a trial lawyer well-schooled in this area of the law. Fair Credit Reporting Act litigation is complex.

    “The Act is full of holes. Many attorneys who believe they have a good case based on the facts discover, upon reviewing the Act, that the wrong suffered by their client is not prohibited by it. Furthermore, the Act is so poorly drafted and difficult to understand that courts are in disagreement over some fundamental questions.” Fair Credit Reporting, National Consumer Law Center, (5th Edition 2004).
