Atlanta Credit Repair Lawyer corrects errors on your credit.

Our law firm helps Atlanta consumers fight credit bureaus, creditors, and collectors who are falsely reporting and makes them pay you damages.

Top Issues Atlanta Credit Repair Attorneys Handle

We can help Georgia consumers dispute the following common types of credit areas.


Reporting the Wrong Balance/Already Paid

If a credit bureau is reporting you as having a balance due on something you've already paid off, representing as your Atlanta credit attorney, we can force them to correct the mistake and compensate you.


Reporting Missed Payments When You Have Proof

Is your report showing that you missed payments when you clearly didn't? We can help you get the proof of your payment history to prove them wrong. In these types of cases, we make sure you have disputed to the correct agencies and have proof. Plus, we are near Atlanta. 


Identity Theft on Credit 

Do you need an identity theft lawyer for unwanted accounts on your credit report? You will want an experienced attorney near Atlanta to get the fraudulent accounts removed. Otherwise, you will fight and not win. 

These can be valuable cases to you if the errors are not corrected after following the right steps and process.


Does not Belong to Me -- Mixed/Merged with Another Person

Does it seem like your report has another's information and accounts on it? The more you learn about this type of merger one's credit report, the more you can see you will need a lawyer to pull back the curtains.


Report Says Your Dead - When You Are Not

Your report says you're dead? That's likely a violation of the law. This is what I do as a credit repair attorney as opposed to a credit repair company.


Bankruptcy Reporting Issues Such As Late Payments and Balances

If you need to repair your credit based on bankruptcy issues, then reach out. Your account should not show a balance due. Also, it should not show any missed payments. Many credit repair companies will charge you to for this. We will sue them. We aren't a credit repair company. We are a law firm that sues on a contingency basis.

Our “No Fee Guarantee” for Georgia 

We will never charge you any money unless we get you a recovery first. Period. That's our "No Fee Guarantee". We do this because the Fair Credit Reporting Act pays damages and your attorneys' fees if you win. That's why you don't pay unless we win.

I would recommend my friends or family members if they had the same problem.

Poor credit because of mistakes in the information being reported by the credit reporting agencies.

does the reporting have to be inaccurate?

Yes. There has to be something wrong on your report. Some credit repair companies with dispute things that are true. We don't. Untrustworthy credit repair companies make it harder for normal people to have their issues resolved. As a result, people end up hiring more credit repair companies. There is nothing wrong with credit repair, as long as your are doing credit repair steps (disputing properly) on actual errors.

Businesses like collection agencies, credit card companies, auto loans, utilities, and mortgages must all report correctly - even if they are reporting negative information. It must be accurate. 

This also applies to Equifax, Experian, and Trans Union.
