About Me

I am a member of Skaar & Feagle, LLP.  I have an AV Peer rating on Martindale.com for consumer law and a 10.0 rating on AVVO.  My partner and I have over 50 years of combined experiance, the great majority of which has been in consumer rights litigation.  We represent both consumers who have been sued in the various state courts of Georgia for debts as well as bringing affirmative claims in both Georgia and Federal courts for violations of various consumer protection laws.   We gladly share our time to listen to people who have consumer related issues and offer consumers free consultations for cases involving debt collection defense, debt collection abuse, credit reporting errors due to theft of id or merged information, or bad employment or criminal background checks.  Often are fees are paid by the other side in affirmative consumer rights cases, but even where the case is solely a debt defense case, we are flexible and accomodating to clients that need help paying our fees.
