I endorse this lawyer.
I endorse this lawyer. I have known Sonya for about 7 years. Professionally she has been generous with her time and guidance. Sonya keeps abreast of the current law for FDCPA, FCRA and other consumer protection rights. I have referred many clients to her. Just a good attorney.
Several years ago I represented a defendant who was sued by a plaintiff represented by Ms. Smith-Valentine in federal court based upon alleged violations of the Fair Credit Reporting Act. Although my client managed to win that particular case, though no fault of Ms. Smith-Valentine, I came away deeply impressed with Ms. Smith-Valentine's professionalism, her litigation skills, and her knowledge of consumer law in general and the FCRA in particular. As an attorney who normally practices consumer law myself, on the plaintiff side, where the opposing party is often a corporation with vastly superior resources, I admire Ms. Smith-Valentine for having the courage to concentrate her practice in this important area. I would not hesitate to recommend Ms. Smith-Valentine to clients having problems with the FRCA and related statutes within her area of expertise or, indeed, to use her services myself if I faced such problems.
Sonya Smith-Valentine is the area's expert on Fair Credit Reporting. I regularly refer clients to her when they believe inaccurate information has been placed on their credit reports. I have also had the opportunity to hear Sonya Smith-Valentine speak on several occasions, and she is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to the Fair Credit Reporting Act and debt collection laws. I am confident she offers only the best representation to her clients.
Sonya Smith-Valentine is an asset to the Consumer Law community. I have seen her speak at seminars and CLE courses and I have attended her Solo Bootcamp . She is very knowledgeable and great to work with. I highly recommend Sonya.
Sonya is very knowledgeable and it is a pleasure to work with her. I highly recommend her office.
I am a member of the Maryland Bar and I am familiar with Sonya Smith Valentine's work in both the consumer credit and law practice management arena. I have seen Smith-Valentine on local television stations discussing consumer credit issues and her presentations reflect her intelligence, knowledge and level of comfort with this extremely complex area. I've also heard Ms. Smith-Valentine speak on practice management issues at state bar events and reviewed some of her practice forms, all of which reflect her commitment to providing efficient and quality service to her clients in a highly ethical manner. I recommend Ms. Smith-Valentine without reservation.
I have referred a number of cases to Sonya, and she always does a good job. I highly recommend her.
I endorse this lawyer's work. I have watched her give seminar presentations at conferences given for lawyers and seen the work she does for her clients and can recommend that if you have an identify theft or credit rights problem, especially, then this is the person to see if you're anywhere near her office in Maryland.
