BEST SERVICE
At the point I urgently needed a dental procedure that needed to be done for $2500 it was impossible to get approved for a big enough limit credit card to cover the cost of the dental procedure because of my outstanding debts, derogation marks inquiries and collections. Raylink came through for me by removing all derogatory marks, inquiries and collections, and this month I successfully completed the dental procedure having gotten approved of a high limit credit card. Thank you, God’s sent. Raylink’s email: [email protected]

5 STAR REVIEW
Months ago I was scammed by some rip-offs after my father’s death, they promised to fix my credit score. I told them my entire financial situation and they promised to help me ASAP and I trusted them. They asked me to make an upfront payment of $2000 which I did. I had already made the second payment of $2000 before my wonderful cousin sister who has been beside me through all my ordeals convinced me they were scammers, she later introduced me to a credit guru (Metronet Credit Solution) who had helped her acquire loan in the past. They helped me clear every negative item on my report and boosted my score to excellent within 9days interval; they further helped me to recover my $4,000 from those scammers. I’m very grateful for their help. I strongly recommend them to any person in need of credit fix, fund recovery, bitcoin recovery. Are you tired of been scammed Contact them via [email protected] or text 6 2 6 5 1 4 0 6 2 0 for any kind of loan, bitcoin investment and don’t forget to mention me.

Adam stuck with me for 3 years strong. We tackled the “Super Lawyer” and his people and were able to come to a settlement. Mr.Swartz will go out of his way to make sure you’re comfortable through the whole process.

Always willing to go the extra mile.
While ultimately deciding that I didn't have a case that was worth pursuing, Mr. Swartz took the time to review my situation and offer not only his professional opinion, but the references to support his opinion. It wasn't in my best interest to hire him this time, but he will be my first choice if I need an attorney in the future.

Excellent Lawyer!
Initially I went to Adam regarding an issue I had with a Webmaster. I was very worried about my situation. I had never ran into anything like this before. Adam took the time to listen to all of the details of my issue. He helped me to feel more at ease and gave me a feeling of confidence that it would be resolved. Not too long after that it was completely resolved! I was so pleased and thankful for his service. I highly recommend this layer. Two thumbs up!

Judgement Settlement
After having lost a home (2009) and then being hit with a default judgement, my wife and I struggled for years with a very ruthless creditor. Having spoken with several "services" and attorneys, we could never find one that would truly help us avoid the inevitable. Living with this hanging over our heads has been miserable. I contacted Adam Swartz who negotiated a settlement of 13.25% of the debt ...approaching $100K. We couldn't be happier, or more please with Adam and his team. I would highly recommend Adam Swartz and his firm to anyone that needs debt relief and amicable yet favorable results.

Final Judgment against American Express entered
I was at a loss when my prior attorney refused to prepare the Final Judgment required to be signed by Judge to close a cause I had won against American Express. The weeks had passed since the trial and I ran the risk that the cause would be Dismissed for Want of Prosecution if a Final Judgment was not entered soon. I was able to file a Substitution of Counsel and prepare a Final Judgment for the District Court Judge to sign and end almost three years of litigation. I can now begin to clear my credit report of incorrect credit reporting made by American Express. I highly recommend Adam Swartz

My Credit and Debt settlement solved!
Adam Swartz was recommended to me through a friend. Hiring Mr Swartz for my credit and debt issues was the best decision I made. Mr. Swartz took great care in knowing every little detail of the case. I have never seen a lawyer who was more passionate about his work ,who took the extra time and effort to make sure everything was in order. His knowledge of the credit and debt negotiations fields was very impressive. I would recommend Mr. Swartz to all of my family and friends. He is one lawyer who is on top of his game.

Adam is a 5 Star Attorney Referral
I can and do recommend Adam, without hesitation or reservation, if you are in need of a caring, knowledgeable and dedicated attorney. He was great in helping me with several consumer law matters and thanks to him I was able to get some inaccurate and invalid items removed from my credit reports.
Posted by Will | December 17, 2014
Always honest
I have spoken to Adam on multiple legal queries I have had, and he always provides me the answers and possibilities from all sides-pro and con. I have always found him to be very honest and ethical to his responses, even when he didn't have to. He has always been prompt in response and it is very obvious that his goal is to do what is best for the person or client in question. I would recommend Adam for any needs in legal representation or for legal and professional expertise in any matter.

The answer to my prayers.
I met Adam through a mutual friend in my community and for about a month never asked what he did or what his career was. Until one day I asked and he said "I help people with their credit",thinking to myself or great just another scam. I actually used Lexington Law a few years prior and gave them almost one thousand dollars and received little to no results. So I was being pessimistic when Adam told me what he did. It wasent until an hours later after he explained EVERYTHING to me about credit FICO scores,hard vs soft pulls and bad debt vs good debt. He opened my eyes and gave me new found hope. I went through the program and had great communication with him and saw all three my scores raise drastically. He does an amazing job at what he does. He will not lie to you or mislead you. Thank you Adam and White Jacobs. Justin J

The Best of the Best!
I'm not usually the type of person that writes a review but I felt compelled to write about Adam. I consider Adam to be amongst the elite where the only thing on his mind is to do the best possible thing for his clients. With the help of Adam, I was able to settle a six figure case with favorable terms. He kept me up to speed during the negotiations and was always accessible via email or phone.

Trust and transparency
Working with Mr. Swartz has been extremely pleasant and informative. He always answers questions and is willing to go above and beyond for anyone he represents. If you need someone that REALLY has your best interest in mind, Adam is your man.
Posted by Johnathan | July 14, 2014
Very happy with my results
Adam restored my credit after I was injured on active duty. Through his hard work and persistence he was able to raise my scores to a level I never thought possible. Everything happened exactly as he said it would . I would recommend Adam to anyone who needs a professional credit repair. I had used credit repair companies before with no success. My advice is if you need credit repair hire a licensed attorney and you would be doing yourself a huge favor by hiring Adam.

Adam began rattling off case law and pointing to very specific issues that he felt I should address during the hearing. As a result of my discussions with Adam, I was able to get a dismissal on behalf of my client. I was thrilled and, obviously, my client was happy.
