I've been practicing consumer protection law ever since I graduated from law school in 1999. I love this area of the law becasue I get to help people improve their lives and recover from difficult circumstances.  

I'm also a husband and father of four young children.  Raising them is a lot of work but tremendous source of joy in my life.  They are a true blessing and I'm lucky to be able to have a job that I can proudly tell them about when they grow up.

The most kind person i ever met
Called Kevin for a credit card dispute issue I had, even when he noticed that this is not within his scope of work and he will not be on this case, he was still willing to spend his valuable time to advice me in great details on what my best options would be going forward. Thanks Kevin

Best Lawyer Ever!
Kevin Mallon is a shark in settlements & court, he is absolutely amazing. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is experiencing credit, identity thief, fraudulent activity related matters. I've worked with Kevin for 2 years now and not only did win all 3 of my lawsuits, he also insured that my credit was restored back to normal after being a victim of identity thief.

Amazing Lawyer!
I recently had to deal with a rude collection agency, and the assistance that I received from attorney Mallon was awesome. At every step of the process, from the initial phone call when I desperately called him, and throughout our interaction, he was extremely helpful, professional, responsive, knowledgeable, and caring. Also, his office staff is very prompt, professional, and helpful. I am delighted that attorney Mallon represented me, and I wholeheartedly recommend his law firm and services.

Credit Reporting Error Resolved in Less Than Three Months!
Kevin is hard working, responsive, informative, and follows through on everything he promised. I had a Creditor incorrectly report that an account I paid in full timely and closed was in collections. My credit score dropped 60 points! I tried working with this Creditor for 2 months (countless phone calls and letters), they promised they would resolve it. I disputed it with the credit reporting agencies, one would not change it as they deferred to the Creditor even though I sent them verification. I even reported them to the Consumer Financial Protection Board CFPB - I found it on the back of my credit card statement under disputed accounts. The CFPB actually pushed the Creditor, but backed away once the Creditor assured them they resolved the issue, which they had not. Kevin thoroughly explained to me the process, how he planned to proceed (with my permission), discussed expectations, and followed through. I really just wanted the Creditor and Credit Reporting Agency to fix the error quickly and issue an apology (and repair my credit score right away). That did not happen. We ended up having to file suit and I was actually compensated for this nightmare. I did not get the apology I wanted, but my credit score went up 68 points, and I was paid for the damage. I saw Kevin to first discuss my case at the end of August, received the first settlement in November and the second in early December, much more quickly than anticipated. Throughout the entire time Kevin kept me informed and returned every phone call. If you have ever dealt with an attorney before you know that this is quite rare. I highly recommend Kevin. I was lucky I found him.

Intelligent, motivated and thoughtful!
Kevin gives you the feeling of caring and being in your corner. But most importantly, it's more than just a feeling. Kevin truly cares and has your back! I recommend him highly! JPC, Denver CO

Extremely Confident, Knowledgeable Attorney With A Fighting Spirit
I hired Kevin to represent me in an ongoing FDCPA/FCRA lawsuit. Kevin's knowledge base in this area is superb and he has fought for me vociferously throughout this process, resulting in very favorable results thus far. I have been very impressed with his confident, direct approach and he has always answered my questions clearly and carefully. I'd certainly recommend him without hesitation to anyone looking for representation in his practice areas.

Very informative and approchable.
Right away Kevin was different from other lawyers I had talked to about my situation. He answered all my questions and took his time to make sure I understood all the angles of my case in an easy to understand way. I'm very confident that the outcome of my case would not have been as good with another guy.

An expert in debt collection and credit repair, good job!
My credit score was damaged by a wrong debt collection record. None of the companies involved was willing to look into the well-documented facts. I came to Mr. Mallon's office to seek justice and recovery of the economic damage. He immediately understood the essence of the matter and laid out a strategic plan of actions. During this case, I am impressed by his complete and accurate knowledge in his area of practice. Our plan proceeded just as he predicted, and the outcome was much better than I had hoped for. I was doubtful about the outcome of this lawsuit a couple of times, but Mr. Mallon proved to be an extremely experienced guide in this field, who always knew how to achieve the best result. I am grateful to him for winning the case, as well as for all the interesting learning experience in civil lawsuits. If there are ratings for professionalism, courtesy and respect for clients, I will also give him an excellent rating. In addition, he is a very smart negotiator in settlement and other matters. Many companies such as credit bureaus do not have any incentive to protect individual consumers in isolated cases. It is not cost effective for them, but could be an upsetting issue for a single person or family. Mr. Mallon's work is a valuable service to the society. I wouldn't have the time and energy to win my case against three defendants without his work. We need more lawyers like him to protect and enforce the law.

Contacts and Consumer law
I brought a new car from a major dealership; when I received the title from DMV it said “used”. I tried to work with the dealership but although they were smiling and very apologetic they were only looking out for their best interest after a few months of bad offers and having DMV intervene in my behalf . I retained Mr. Mallon and shortly thereafter the situation was resolved. I got back my payments I made to the finance company and the dealership took ownership of the car. I am very happy with the outcome. If you need someone to fight for you he is the go to guy.

Consumer protection Attorney | Jan 10
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I've known Kevin for about 15 years. Instead of going to work for the big tall building law firms (which were calling), Kevin took the path of helping people (which otherwise would not have access to our civil justice system). He is regarded as an expert and distinguished among his colleagues in unlawful credit reporting and consumer protection. If you landed Kevin as your attorney, you should consider yourself very fortunate. Many lawyers know the law. Not many lawyers know the law as well as Kevin, nor are as good at resolving a case with a difficult Defendant."
