Amazing
I received Eric’s name from this website and thought I’d give him a call. Eric is very easy to talk to, he works fast and completely honest. I ended up with more than I even imagined I would with this case. I would definitely hire Eric again.

Great Attorney!
This was the second time I had Eric Stephenson as my attorney, and both times he did a great job. He fights hard for his clients, and he is one of the few attorneys, that actually responds to his clients very quickly. Hire him as your attorney, you won't be disappointed!

Incredible Powerhouse Attorney
Wow, I am so fortunate to have found Eric. He is clearly the best in his field and absolutely dominated in this case I sent him/worked with him on (he did everything). It was tremendously satisfying to watch him decimate the other side. As one attorney to another, I found him inspiring. He navigated the case like it was a chess game—considering all the future moves as the current ones unfolded just as he designed. He also impressed me with the compassion he has for his clients, he is a genuinely good person to boot. I can’t recommend him enough.

Done done and done!!!!
I was the victim of a very difficult situation with identity theft. Creditors and debt collectors would not listen nor did they care about what I was going through. I contacted Eric Stephenson and explained my situation to him. Eric went right to work. His affidavit and information packets are second to none!! Eric gets solid results. But my case doesn’t stop there. The credit reporting agencies responded right away and my credit reports were amended immediately. The collection agencies though decided they wanted to keep harassing me. Selling off my debt doing everything they could to make life miserable even after the actual identity thief was convicted. They still kept pushing. Well Eric took care of that. I had no idea how to make them stop but Eric sure did!! Long story short we won a very handsome settlement from the creditors and collectors! We as consumers have rights and we do not have to be harassed. There are laws that protect us from this harassment. Eric Stephenson will get you a positive result! I recommend him whole heartedly. He won’t back down. I’ve seen him first hand take on a creditor with an endless amount of resources and win a settlement. He will do the same for you. Thank you Eric Stephenson.

Excellent Attorney - Successful Outcome
I was the target of a sophisticated attack resulting in some personal accounts being breached. These events were partly made possible due to negligence on the part of entities entrusted with my information...I worked with Eric Stephenson to address damages and restore some degree of accountability. Eric Stephenson was excellent and in front of everything throughout the process, resulting in a successful outcome. I would not hesitate to recommend his services/expertise to anyone needing to address issues involving data theft and identity fraud.

Identity theft.
I hired Eric Stephenson to help me with my credit report. I was a victim of identity theft and had absolutely no idea on how to get my credit report cleared up of all of the accounts that were damaged because of the identity theft. Eric provided me with a packet containing all of the necessary forms to fill out so he could go to work dealing with the creditors,debt collectors and the credit reporting agencies. The results were immediate. Eric later went on to represent me when I was being sued unlawfully for an account that was identity theft. We won. It’s nice to be represented by a knowledgeable and trustworthy attorney. He protected my rights and stood up for me. I had no idea on what to do. He cares about his clients and has made a lifelong friend in me. Thank you again Eric. Your hard work and dedication has definitely changed my life for the better. I appreciate all you do for me. I highly recommend this attorney to anyone who is reading this review.

Problem Solved!
I hired Eric to get rid of the fraudulent accounts that had opened under my name, he achieved this on the first go around 100%!! I had been fighting some of the same accounts for years. My credit score was now the best it has been in over 10 years.

Identity theft representation
I contracted with Eric Stephenson to clear up some problems that I had due to my Identity being stolen and a fraudulent account that had been opened. Eric quickly and completely cleared up all of the fraud and got them removed from all of my credit reports. He even got a new inquiry that happened while we were working the others cleared up. Eric does an awesome job and I would recomend him to everyone.

Smart and Effective!!
I had struggled with my credit score for several years because of the financial collapse in 2008-2009. After spending a great deal of time and money righting my ship financially, several creditors were still reporting either inaccurately or not at all. So in 2017 we determined we needed the help of an experienced attorney. After extensive reviews with several attorneys we decided to hire Eric Stephenson, and he did not disappoint!! After thoroughly understanding our case and grievance he was able to get things corrected and straightened out within a month or so. This became incredibly important as we were interested in refinancing our mortgage. We contacted Eric recently where he added even more service. Eric drafted a letter for us to present to creditors that supported his work and reflected the recent credit reporting agencies changes. We were ultimately able to refinance our mortgage saving us easily $12,000 a year in interest payments!! Eric Stephenson attention to detail and his efforts to prioritize our needs so quickly has paid off.....

Outstanding service!
I consulted Eric Stephenson when a lender expected to continue to collect after receiving early and full repayment on a student loan. With one letter to the lender, Mr. Stephenson ended the chaos and earned my deep appreciation for his expertise.

Quick action consolation required - He was on it!
Having been served complex papers with dozens of technology complex matters, I emailed Eric for an initial consultation. I believe it was his first look at common copyright trolling activities I consider modern racketeering. I was extremely pleased with his quick action and sincere passion for helping me with the highly technical specifics of the case. I can't recommend him highly enough.

Won my case quickly and without a trial.
Mr. Stephenson helped me successfully sue a telemarketing company who had been harassing me. He was able to secure $10,000 from them in an out of court settlement.

Straight forward, professional & successful in helping me.
I emailed Eric off his website after finding his name on a google search. I was looking for a specialist in credit repair & identity theft. Within ten minutes he called me, and we had a productive conversation about how he can help me. Within several weeks my problem was completely solved thanks to the expert tactics he implemented. I highly recommend Eric for his specialty and professionalism.
