We defend consumers in credit card lawsuits from debt buyers who purchase old “zombie” credit card debt. We also sue those debt buyers under the FDCPA when those same debt collectors harass our clients. We represent consumers also in federal court against large credit reporting agencies such as Trans Union, Experian and Equifax when those credit reporting agencies fail to correct inaccurate information on consumer credit reports.

Paramount Law STOPPED Abusive Debt Collector
Paramount Law in Tulsa helped me stop harassment by an abusive debt collector. They filed a lawsuit under the FDCPA in Oklahoma Federal Court and the debt collector quickly settled, resulting in a check to me! I recommend Paramount Law for all of your consumer protection law needs in Oklahoma, especially consumers being abused by debt collection companies.

Saved from Junk Debt Collector
Victor is a blessing! He stood up for me in a debt collection lawsuit and won for me. He eased my mind and took away my stress. He beat the junk debt collector at their own game. Thank you Victor.

Awesome Attorney!!!
Victor has helped me on several cases with great results every time. Most recently, I contacted him about a matter that I did not expect to be his area of expertise, but he was able to offer some guidance, and that guidance resulted in my being able to convince the opposing party to drop the case before an official suit was actually filed.

The Very Best Scam Detector
I contacted Victor R. Wandres after receiving a threatening phone call where someone posing as a debt collector was demanding payment. This so called "account manager" had a case number and played the part well. I was threatened with lawsuit papers if I didn't pay within 72 hours. Somehow this person had just enough details about my credit report accounts to convince me (scary). Victor worked very fast & guided me on how to call them back and verify details of a legitimate debt collector. When I asked for information, this in fact revealed that I was being contacted by scam artists. This "case manager" only had the last 4 digits of my account and could't provide many details regarding the original case. He was even reluctant to give me his last name, told me not to call again, and hung up on me! Victor saved my life. Victor Wandres empowered me to take charge of my case. He didn't receive anything from me, so this is the least I can do! I would recommend him in a heartbeat. Thank you, Victor and team.

Really cares, extremely smart
Victor helped in ways no other attorney could. A great plan of attack instead of posture defense.

Great Consumer Protection Help
I didn't even know there were consumer protection lawyers out there. I didn't end up having to hire him, but after I consulted with him, he helped me check and make sure a debt collection wasn't effecting my credit, and check to make sure that a debt collector had dropped a case against me on a debt I had already paid.

Collection Scam
I had a company contact me claiming to be a collection agency trying to collect on a debt that is 10 years old when the statute of limitations is 5 years, they said if I didn't settle they would take me to court to try and scare me, I contacted Victor and he determined that it was most likely a scam, He helped lift a weight off my shoulders!!!

Knowledgeable, compassionate attorney.
I have consulted Mr. Wandres for a couple of problems I was having with consumer protection. He was so very thorough and knowledgeable about what needed to be done, filed, etc. I felt that he actually cared about me as a client and was very happy with him! I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone needing an attorney specializing in these areas.

Highly recommended
All of the sudden, I had phone calls after phone calls at my work from this old cell phone company saying I owed them money. The calls at my work were ridiculous! A little after that, a credit collection was on my credit report. After sending a message thru his company website, Mr. Wandres contacted me right away. He is so acknowledgeable! He explained which were my rights and exactly how to deal with these people. With his help, the collection was removed from my credit and the calls stopped. I highly recommend him to anyone who's been harassed by a debt collector!

Absolutely Recommend
While preparing to move from a home I had a monitored alarm system installed in, I contacted “sleazy alarm company” and was told that I could be let out of my contract if the family purchasing my home were to take over my contract, which they agreed to do. The alarm company then began an entirely new contract with the purchasers of my home and attempted to collect my contract in full as unpaid. The alarm company tried to collect on two contracts for the same home! I fought the alarm company on this and didn’t hear anything for a long time, but it hit my credit report about 5 years later. I found Mr. Wanders on the internet and decided to ask if there was anything I could do to get the bogus collection off of my credit report. Mr. Wanders was incredibly knowledgeable, professional, as well as prompt, easy to talk to and very genuine. I never paid Mr. Wanders or contracted with him because the help and advice he provided allowed me to solve the issue on my own. He generously shared his knowledge by email and over the phone. I followed his instructions exactly and the bogus collection was immediately removed from my credit report. I only have good things to say about Mr. Wandres. Thank you!!

Great Attorney
Victor worked and ultimately settled a debt collection lawsuit for me. I feel extremely fortunate to have run across him, as it seems there are very few attorneys that specialize in consumer protection, and even fewer that were willing to take my case. Victor is very responsive and clearly extremely knowledgeable in his area of expertise. He immediately got the debt collector off my back and ultimately arranged a very equitable settlement for me. His assistant Samantha was also a delight to work with. I have only good things to say about my experience with his firm. I highly recommend Victor.

Excellent, caring and fast!
I contacted Mr. Wandres' office first by phone. His staff was friendly and knowledgeable but most of all they care! I was emailed a questionnaire within minutes and the very next day I received a response from Mr. Wandres. He is knowledgeable and helped me understand my rights. I highly recommend Mr. Wandres to anyone needing help with consumer protection law!

Great lawyer and firm
I recently found myself being sued by a law firm who had no intention of working with me. The company they represent, Midland Funding is sneaky and makes it almost impossible to get a settlement. They try to get a default judgment so you pay 3 times the debt owed. Victor Wandres handled my case and is still in my corner until my credit report is properly reported. Paramount was a great choice as they are pros with this companys tactics and get the results!

Victor fights Cach LLC.
I Hired Victor and his team to fight Cach LLC in a debt lawsuit. I must say I was very impressed with him. This lawyer is a fighter and a good one at that. He does what he says he is going to do and kept me informed all throughout the process. If I ever need a lawyer in the future you can bet it will only be him. Thanks to him and his team this issue is a thing of the past. If you are looking for an attorney look no further your done. Thank you Victor. Brock.

Money well spent!
Few people take the time to get an attorney when faced with a problem. Mr. Wandres was very responsive and knowledgable to my situation. A small investment in his fee saved me thousands. I am very pleased with the outcome of my case and can wholeheartedly recommend Mr. Wandres to anyone needing legal representation. Especially if anyone is facing legal action from Midland Funding. Take the time and consult Mr. Wandres , he can and will help you.
