I am a consumer litigation attorney with the Pacific Northwest law firm of Baxter & Baxter.  I represent consumers in identity theft cases, false credit report cases, and debt collector harassment cases.  My firm has offices in Portland, Oregon and Vancouver Washington.  In addition to consumer protection law, the attorneys of my firm also represent people in bankruptcy.
