This review is from a potential client who consulted with this attorney.
| Consulted Attorney
After going through car repossession and foreclosure in 2020, my credit score dropped to Equifax: 509, TransUnion: 501. All attempts to get my credit back to a good rating didn’t yield positive results. Just last month while I was browsing a credit blog, I came across a comment by Laura on how she got her credit fixed by PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST. Immediately, I reached out to PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST and asked if he could help fix my credit score too. He responded positively and I had to subscribe to his services. On checking my credit report after 6 days, my score had skyrocketed to Equifax: 806, TransUnion: 811. I also noticed that the car repossession, foreclosure, hard inquiries, and late payments on my credit report have been removed. What an awesome service! Here’s his contact info if you need his services; EMAIL: [email protected] / (480) 420-8331.

Very Happy
Great communication on possible outcomes. I always knew where I was at in the process and, when a last minute issue occurred, a plan was proposed and successfully acted on. Highly recommend!
