About me

Our mission is to protect and enforce the consumer rights of the citizens of South Carolina, statewide. The ”big businesses” you deal with should take care of the money and information you entrust, tell the truth, keep promises, and follow the law.

We represent individuals and businesses in cases against credit reporting agencies, banks, insurance companies, debt collectors, securities brokers and dealers.

We never take cases against consumers.
