About me

I am a Seattle lawyer dedicated to consumer protection and can help you deal with collection agencies, debt collection, and if there are things on credit report that really should not be there.  If you are the victim of abusive collection calls, debt collector harassment, or there is something on your credit report that does not belong to you, call me.  I am experienced handling these matters. Don't give up -- you have rights as a consumer.
