Credit Repair That Actually Works!
Years ago, as part of my divorce I granted my ex-wife the house that we bought together while married and she assumed responsibility for it. At some point she started paying her mortgage late and that eventually found its way to my credit report (some company called PHH). Since it had nothing to do with me, I disputed the account and submitted my divorce decree that clearly shows she assumed responsibility and I no longer have any interest in the house etc. the dispute was denied and come back verified. Frustrating since I had nothing to do with it but at the time I assumed I was stuck with it because in the eyes of creditors I was still on the hook for the debt (the house wasn’t refinanced out of my name at the time). There are several 180 days late and they are the only baddies left on my report. All this brought down my credit score to 522. I can’t thank PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST enough for taking my credit out of the garbage after my divorce. PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST has done such an amazing job to help me clear all the negative items and restore my credit score to 811. This company has been so professional and so amazing at keeping in touch with me every single step of the way. Explaining in detail exactly what needs to be done. Thank you PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST I will recommend their service to all my friends and family. Contact them via: [email protected] / +1 (409) 231-0041.

Simply the Best !
If you want an attorney who will seek the best possible outcome for your case contact Suzanne Stevens ! She is the best attorney I have ever known bar none !! Be sure to read her plan process and goals on stevenstexaslaw.com. She made it work for me perfectly! She is available and reliable! I called some firms here who took my info and said they would contact me. I never got to talk to an attorney. I called Ms Stevens and was able to have a 20 + minute interview with her right away after hours. I was truly impressed with the interview and hired her the next day. She is an excellent and compassionate communicator and listener! I had an extensive and productive life and case story in her office. She wants to know you as well as your case and this sets her apart ! It leads to her precise defense plan for you. She had me relaxed and at ease right away. Instead of feeling like another number being processed for court I felt like I was joining a team! The defense plan she recommends to you gets you started on recovering in advance and shows the state and court you want to do the right thing. An excellent tool! Suzanne has great experience and knows the law thoroughly! Her preparation with you and the case facts gives her the tools to fight the case for you and work to mitigate the state’s case. She is very experienced in this court which is another good point ! She gives you an honest possible outcome both good and not so good so you are well prepared ! She is on call and text for you and assists you to case conclusion and afterwards. Personal service at its best ! I will not hire another attorney after working with Suzanne Stevens.m ! She has resolved my case fairly and relieved me of many months of worry and stress. I will not forget her and relax knowing she is there for me !! She deserves my highest recommendation !!

Suzanne Stevens is the REAL DEAL
I got into some trouble in 2021, and the attorneys I had at the time kept dropping the ball. A friend of my recommended Attorney Suzanne Stevens and and she rescued me (literally). From the moment Suzanne took, she was there walking me through the trenches every step of the way. On the day I had to report to jail, she stayed in constant contact with my mom and even called to check up on me after my release (which was after hours). She has years of experience and is super knowledgeable of the legal system which put me at ease. I was able to turn my situation over to her and trust knowing that she was going to FIGHT the system for me. She does not cheat facts and is truthful about your situation and possible outcomes, which I greatly appreciated. Suzanne was RELIABLE. Attorneys have multiple caseloads at one time but any time I had a question or needed information she literally was just a text/call away. She never made me feel that I was just another case. There was even moment that time had elapsed (months) and even then I was able to reach out and she responded within the same day. GEM. That’s exceptional. Quality experience that you can trust. What she promised she DELIVERED and that says a lot. I’m happy to say that with Suzanne hard work and tenacity my case was dismissed! I can’t say thank you enough <3

Absolutely Incredible
Suzanne absolutely saved my life! I can't imagine where I would be without her. I got myself into a difficult place and someone recommended that I call Suzanne. The moment I spoke with her, I felt at ease. She calmed my fears and gave me a detailed plan on what we were going to do to fix everything. In all honesty, I left her office in tears of relief. She has been by my side every step of the way, and has never failed to answer any of my questions or hesitated to explain what was going on. The legal process isn't the easiest thing to understand for someone who's never dealt with it. That lack of knowledge can be scary. But with Suzanne there, I wasn't worried. She was always a call or text away. I recommend her to absolutely anyone who needs help. She will set you on the right path and work with the most dedication to get you where you need to be.

Best Money I've spent in a long time!!
At first I thought, Suzanne, was a bit high for the cost to obtain her services, but after working with her on my sons case, I couldn't have spent the money on a better lawyer. She did such an amazing job, was always available any time I needed her and answered any question. Look no further for a defense attorney as she'll be your one and only stop. If I EVER need another lawyer in TX she'll be my first and last call!!! I would HIGHLY recommend her. Do not listen to the one bad review she got on Google; that person has her mixed up with someone else. If I could give 10 or more stars I would.

Case Dismissed!
Suzanne is way more than an attorney, she is an advocate and champion for her clients. Her legal approach is extremely effective and she is an "out of the box" thinker. Once she had all of the details related to my case she said, "Not every case is worthy of a dismissal, but yours is and I will fight for this", and she did. My case was dismissed and I will forever be grateful to her!!!

My Guardian Angel
When I was first reached out to Suzanne I felt an immediate connection. A feeling that this person truly cares and wanted to help me. I reached out to a few more attorneys thinking it would be best to do my due diligence but it was a done deal after our initial discussion. She takes on a personal, life and love style approach. An approach I would think not many attorneys would do. She was upfront, honest, didn’t try to give me a sales job, but more importantly gave me things to think about. It was legal therapy. Or maybe…therapy from someone with a law degree. She touched into the root of my problem while trying to get us the best outcome from the situation. I was hopeless….lost…sad…ashamed…stressed. Talking to her just made everything seem ok. That this wasn’t going to define the rest of my life. And amongst all the life and love changing experience on a personal level, we got a great result from my charge. She’s a pro. You will not be disappointed in her. Her door is always open and I never felt I was bothering her or being a nuisance. She will work for you. She cares. She will make you not feel ashamed. And at the end of the day, you’ll need someone like that on your side because the clerks and people at court in Denton county do not! I’m so glad I lucked out and found her. I got a great person…a friend. Hope you do too.

Better then amazing
If your looking for a lawyer that actually listen to you, that goes over & above for her clients then CALL HER! You get a smart lawyer who truly cares to help and fights for what is right! She has helped me at my lowest time in life when I felt that nobody cared to listen and I would be stuck dealing with consequences that the gov system over looks. She has passion, heart, motivating, dedicated, and strong at what she does! Call her and you won’t call anyone else!

An excellent, holistic lawyer who knows the situation is more than just the charge
Ms. Stevens was referred to my family when one of my children was charged with a felony. From start to finish she worked with us on assembling a plan to work with all involved parties. She made sure as parents we knew what we needed to do to assist with the case. She worked with my child to prepare them to engage with the state in a positive and appropriate manner. She worked with the state to make the appropriate accommodations in the bond order to keep them engaged in their education. Above all Ms. Steven's was accessible and patient working with us to understand what was needed to cope with and manage the situation.

Suzanne is the best of the best!!
Spent roughly 7 hours speaking with this woman the first time we met and it was incredibly worthwhile. She turned an unfortunate situation into a valuable experience. Suzanne is a deeply invested and spiritual individual, she’s personable, passionate, and thorough. Everything you would hope for in an attorney, and some! She’s gives life changing advice and truly cares in a way that is second to none. I am eternally honored and grateful to have found her!!

The best attorney in town.
I have never met anyone like Suzanne Stevens. Not only did she help me with all my troubles. But I have never trusted a lawyer. Until now! She went to the mat for me. She was always there for me if I had questions. Not only that! She really cares for me. In a time when everyone else left me. She was always there for me and still is. God bless you Suzanne.

Best Lawyer I ever HIRED!
Mrs. Stevens is hands down ONE OF THE BEST LAWYERS I've ever had the pleasure of meeting/hiring. I was in a really bad legal bind when I first met Mrs. Stevens and I had spoken to numerous lawyers before her and none of them gave me much hope for my particular situation unless I was willing to spend a whole lot money, but right from the very start of our conversation. Mrs. Stevens has an uncanny way of making a person feel everything is gonna be okay and she really cared about my situation. She never rushed my time with her and never looked for ways to over charge me with made up work or phone calls to make extra money off me as a client like some lawyers I have dealt with in the past. She went ABOVE & BEYOND her normal call of work to make sure my legal matter was handled quickly and efficiently. And now a year later after dealing with this matter for nearly 6yrs, I am VERY HAPPY TO SAY...my situation is ALL CLEARED and Mrs. Stevens even managed to keep all this off my record. I would refer Mrs. Stevens to ANYONE in need of legal help and would rehire her in a heartbeat if ever in need of legal services again. Thank you so much Mrs. Stevens, I couldn't have done all of this without you!

A Lawyer Who Works For You!
From the first moment of retaining Mrs. Stevens, she was laser focused on me. My case was only a piece of my issues. She helped me to solve my issues that led to getting into legal troubles. She gave me specific advise she believed would help us with getting a better deal from the state. She was 100% correct. She works her butt off for you, but she expects results from her clients as well. Her way of practicing law paid off for me and I'm in a much better place in my life than I have been in decades. I cannot recommend her enough!

The BEST attorney, hands down.
I don't usually take time to write a review but I found it very necessary to do so. I was charged with assault. I had never been in any serious trouble so I decided to find a lawyer. She was there 100% of the time! Day or night. Some parts of the case were complicated, she did everything to help my side of the story be heard! She cared about me, my family.. I will NEVER go to another attorney!!
