I found myself in an unfortunate situation years ago and a friend researched and found Mr. Pittman's law firm. I contacted Mr. Pittman and he took my case after listening to my story. He initiated my case without full payment up front. Long story short, I let the matter fall by the wayside but it came back to haunt me years later. Mr. Pittman picked right up where he left off and resolved my legal matter in a professional and expeditious manner. He and his assistant Karen were always a phone call or email away with any questions I had. Their perseverance paid off and my case was resolved in my favor. I would highly recommend Mr. Pittman.

I was unfortunately put into a situation that required the help of a lawyer and I was lucky enough to find Dale to help me. Dale stepped right in, reviewed and researched what had happened, and was available basically night and day to answer any questions.
The whole process took about 7 months and he was so helpful and made this stressful and frustrating situation, better. Not knowing much about the laws around debt collection, I leaned on him for his expertise. Before doing anything or making a decision, Dale always called me first, walked me through the options, the pros and cons and his recommendation and allowed me to make the ultimate decision.
I hope that I never require Dale's help in the future, but if I do, he'll be the first person I call.

I called and emailed 5 lawyers one day. He was the only one that took my call and gave me free advice for initial court appearance and listened to me and gave me exact fees for handling the case. He is expensive, but I'm confident he would win. He is very stern, so don't get the wrong impression, this guy knows his stuff. I will probably hire after my initial court date.

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.
