Atlanta Credit Report Attorney 

Can I sue creditors and credit agencies like Equifax, Experian and Trans Union that are falsely reporting on my credit report?

Yes. If you have mailed in disputes to the credit reporting agencies about errors on your credit report, but the errors are still there, then you can sue creditors and credit reporting agencies for any damages you have suffered. An Atlanta credit report attorney, like myself, can make them correct any errors, pay you your damages and make them pay all legal fees. We do not charge clients unless we win.

Are the credit bureaus refusing to take inaccurate information off of your credit report? Is this keeping you from getting the house or from getting the job you deserve?

What is an FCRA Claim?

An FCRA claim with a credit reporting lawyer generally starts with your credit report being inaccurate. This is a claim against the credit bureaus for damaging your credit after you notified them of their mistakes.  The credit bureaus have a legal responsibility to take make sure the reports they issue are correct and accurate. This is why you must notify the credit bureaus when your credit report is inaccurate. The credit bureaus will request an update from the furnisher - the creditor that is "furnishing" the information to the credit reporting agencies. If creditors say the information is correct when it's actually inaccurate AND the credit agencies don't suppress the account information, you may have a claim for damages. You may need an FCRA attorney to help you navigate the Fair Credit Reporting Act.

What is an FCRA Attorney?

Understanding consumer law and the Fair Credit Reporting Act are the keys to removing actual inaccuracies.
