I needed assistance on how to fix my credit and perhaps purchase a small condo/townhouse. I had a credit score of 517 across board, 4 hard inquiries (11-6-2019) 3 open accounts (car note, $35,000) and student loans (187,000-greatest mistake of my financial life); 3 negative marks, totaling $7,000-thought of asking for a pay to delete before learned about PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST on MyFico blog. It still seems like a dream but I now have a FICO score of 811 and all hard inquiries, student loan, open accounts erased from my report and every debt now appears as paid on time. I sincerely appreciate the service I got from PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST I encourage everyone who has credit issues to quickly contact them on: [email protected] / +1 (585) 466 4373.

Excellent, Honest bankruptcy attorney
Here is some good news for those who are thinking about filing for bankruptcy. At first, considering a bankruptcy was a depressing experience. Finding an attorney that you could trust to provide you the best advice was not easy. Getting experienced and knowledgeable legal advice was a "lifesaver" during this process. Mark, and his wife Kelly, are The Team that walked us through a painful and oftentimes scary process that protected our hard earned assets and allowed us to pay off some creditors which made us feel that we had been as responsible as allowable under the law. A Chapter 13 bankruptcy allowed General Motors to survive and to save thousands of jobs. It help us to also survive and continue to feel like productive citizens that just didn't walk out paying nothing to those creditors that the law said we had to pay. We completed the process successfully and we know we did it because of the excellent services provided by Mark and Kelly. We highly recommend that if anybody finds themselves facing financial difficulties to call Mark & Kelly. They will provide the light at the end of the tunnel and get you through what is really not a scary process at all.

Quality Guy!
Mark is smart, fair, intuitive, honest, and empathetic. I was first represented by Mark in the late 1980’s and then recently in 2016 Mark counseled me regarding a potential bankruptcy. This most recent council again confirmed my belief that Mark is smart, fair, honest, intuitive, and empathetic. This is a high quality guy! Thank you Mark

I highly recommend Mr. Mark Lischwe
I was recently referred to Mr. Mark Lischwe as the attorney to handle my chapter 13 bankruptcy. I had an initial consult with Mr. Lischwe and immediately felt comfortable. He explained everything very clearly and answered every question I had. I never had any doubts about him handling my case. Every time I had a question, I would email Mr. Lischwe’s legal assistant and ask. She would always email me back with an answer as soon as possible. Mr. Lischwe’s legal assistant is the best and the brightest! His office kept in contact with me so that I never once wondered what was happening. Mr. Lischwe has a keen knowledge of the bankruptcy laws, which is very evident in your first meeting with him. His office made my case extremely easy for me. The price was right, the people very friendly and very caring. I am truly thankful I was led to Mr. Lischwe. I highly recommend Mr. Lischwe. He is simply the best!

Excellent Bankruptcy Attorney
Mark handled my case over a 5 year period. There were some issues that he managed expertly and his oversight resulted in my Chapter 13 discharge. Before you hire an attorney, ask how many BKs he's seen through to discharge. I bet not many. It requires skill, oversight, knowledge of the laws, persistence and a genuine care for the client. Mark has all these skills. He comes highly recommended.
