Holding Creditors and Credit Bureaus Accountable: Your Rights Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act

At Ames Law Group, we understand the frustration and stress that comes with inaccurate or unverified information on your credit report. Whether it's a mistake by a credit bureau, an original creditor, or a collection agency, your rights are protected under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). We are here to ensure those rights are upheld and to fight for your financial well-being.

When credit bureaus fail to verify information on your account after you've disputed it, or when they violate the FCRA in any way, taking legal action may be necessary. The same goes for original creditors and collection agencies who refuse to address inaccuracies or discrepancies. Attorney Patricia A. Ames, Esq. believes in exhausting all options before resorting to legal action, but if necessary, is also prepared to take your case to court.

Beware of False Promises

Many individuals and companies claim to have the ability to fix your credit, but often lack the credentials and expertise to do so effectively. They flood credit bureaus with dispute letters or offer questionable tactics like trade lines that can do more harm than good. At Ames Law Group, we are not here to make false promises or offer quick fixes. Instead, Attorney Ames will provide you with the guidance and representation of an experienced attorney who understands the intricacies of credit law.

Your Rights and Compensation
