CREDIT SOLUTION
I’m a 36-year-old software engineer living in the Midwest. Most of my early life I never had good credit. 3 months ago my credit scores were 580 low 600s. I was obviously not happy with those scores so I started to clean up my credit. Opened 2 secured cards; Discover IT for 200; Navy Federal secured for 250. Did the pledge loan as well; self-account, stellar fi, boom for renting reporting, cap one only a 300 limit. Asking a family member to become an AU on their BOA still nothing changed instead my credit score kept dropping. Thanks PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST after reading so many reviews about them. When I got in touch with PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST my story changed for the better. He helped me delete all negative items on my credit report within 6 days. My current score now is 806 TransUnion 811 Experian and 802 Equifax. Here is his contact info: [email protected] I proudly and strongly recommend PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST service to everyone out there in need of a credit fix. He’s above the best and simply the best.

Great communication! Very knowledgeable!
After being injured in a car accident, Scott and his team helped me understand my rights. They were great at keeping me informed and made sure I was not taken advantage of by the insurance company. The team fought to ensure I received a fair settlement. I would definitely recommend Scott and his team to anyone who is dealing with a personal injury!

Good Defense
Scott was very helpful in my defense. He was patient during long, detailed explanations. He quickly grasped complex situations and technical terminology. He also explained legal things in a way that a novice could understand them.He was very deliberate and thorough during the whole process and conscious of my needs.

Scott V. Kelly defends a contested Will
We found Scott to be an excellent attorney and would highly recommend him. He was a man in charge and very prepared and organized in all phases of the lawsuit. He treated us and our witnesses with kindness, courtesy, and respect. He expected honesty from his clients, and he was straight-forward, direct, and stood up for what was right. Scott is a man of good character and we would be proud to call him a friend.
