Stecklein & Rapp (Formerly: Consumer Legal Clinic, LLC) is a consumer protection law firm. Primarily, we handle cases involving abusive debt collectors, predatory lenders and Credit Reporting Agencies, but we also handle cases dealing with Shady car lots as well.

 

Some of the more unscrupulous businesses prey upon those who can least afford it. Consumer protection laws often require the offenders to pay for the victim’s attorney fees allowing us to handle our clients cases, effectively, for free. So typically, not only can we make the situation better, (get the car back or fixed or get the contract rescinded, get the debt collector to stop threatening them at odd hours…etc.) we can get the person compensated for the violation of their rights. And we never ask them for any money to do that.

Outstanding attorney!
When I was looking for an attorney to take my case, I wanted to find someone who was knowledgeable about my unique situation. I found that lawyer 250 miles away and I'm happy to say that I made the right decision. Michael Rapp and the team at Consumer Legal Clinic took my case and handled it with the utmost importance. They kept me in the loop with the status of my case, but not so much as to cause me to worry about anything. This allowed me to live my life as they handled everything. I have no problem at all recommending Mr. Rapp and, for those like myself who are not in the Kansas City area, I highly recommend they make the drive!

Got the job done but communication was poor.
This firm ultimate fulfilled the job they were hired to do, but communication with attorney Michael Rapp left a lot to be desired. He seemed way more concerned with being impressive than actually conveying relevant information. Communication from the firm's paralegal however was prompt, clear and concise. I don't think this firm could stay afloat without her services.

Response from Michael Rapp August 14, 2017
You are totally right! Anne is amazing and I don't know what we'd do without her. Generally, when it comes to status questions on a case, Anne is the best person to talk to. I am sorry that you felt that your phone calls weren't given a priority and left for the paralegal. I am grateful however that we got a good result for you. I wish you the best in your endeavors.
