We will show you how to use the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) to evaluate your credit report file and how to limit who can see your file and how it can be used. 

Using a Credit Repair Company

We can evaluate your situation and help you decide whether you would benefit from using a credit repair company’s services to clean up your credit file. Using a credit repair company is advantageous in some cases, but there may be better options available to increase your credit score in other cases. Sometimes credit repair companies only provide services that you can do yourself with the assistance of an experienced lawyer, so it is not worth hiring them to help you with your credit score. 

Most states, including Florida, have enacted laws that regulate credit repair companies heavily. These laws provide consumers with protection from credit repair companies and impose additional obligations on them than the Fair Credit Reporting Act’s protections. We will advise you as to whether your situation warrants the help of a credit repair company. Suppose you have already begun working with a credit repair company, but you are concerned that the company is violating your rights under the Fair Credit Reporting Act. In that case, we will represent you and negotiate with the company, ensuring that they comply with all federal and state laws.
