  • Ronald Lee Burdge

    I have known attorney Dale Pittman for more than 15 years - he knows debt collection, consumer protection, and class action laws so well he teaches other lawyers about it and how to use it to protect people. When it comes to consumer protection laws, if you have a problem and his office is anywhere near you at all, then he is the one to call.
